We think it is important for local people to be involved in local politics and be part of the discussions and decisions that affect the places we live and work. On this page we have brought together some resources to help you find out more about becoming an independent local councillor.
The LGA has produced a series of self-guided learning materials, covering a number of topics, in the form of workbooks. View the topics available on the LGA website.
The Aims of The Network are to establish a clear recognisable identity for Independent, publicise this identity and to help Independents get elected. Find out about their free classes and events for those interested in becoming an independent candidate.
A series of virtual events to help candidates skill-up and get ready. View available topics and register on the LGA website.
