We are looking for community champions who wish to make a difference in their local area. These are the kind of people who would make an ideal candidate to become a Conservative councillor.
The role of local councillor is a uniquely rewarding experience. It gives you the opportunity to help your local community and be part of a dedicated team providing key services for your area. Being a councillor is also a great way to gain political experience and useful skills in public speaking, debating and problem solving.
Serving councillors have diverse backgrounds and come from a broad mix of people from within each community. New councillors bring fresh ideas, energy and enthusiasm, and that is good news all round for each council and your own local area.
By becoming a councillor, you really can make a difference to your local community.
