As the most local body of government, local (parish and town) councils are closest to their communities and can influence real change. For our councils to be effective, we need people from all backgrounds and experiences who reflect their community to put themselves forward for election. By attending this online event, you will come away with an understanding of the importance of representation and inclusion across the parish and town council sector. You will hear from sector experts on how to reach all groups of people in your community and encourage them to be a part of the council ahead of the May 2021 elections.
Speakers: Rachael Farrington, founder of Voting Counts, Nick Gardham, chief executive officer at Community Organisers and Judeline Nicholas, diversity and inclusion consultant
