Elections campaign


We, the National Association of Local Councils (NALC), have recently launched several new videos as part of our #MakeAChange elections campaign to encourage more people to stand as local councillors in May’s local elections.Elections

 

It was good to see our research showing how just 1% of councillors are under the age of 25 picked up by LocalGov in this article and a follow-up piece on involving young people in local democracy.

 

In these videos you can hear from NALC's Star Council Awards Councillor of the Year, Cllr Nick Penny from Coleford Town Council and Cllr Kai Taylor from Prescot Town Council on why they think residents should stand. More videos will be released next week so keep your eyes peeled.
