The Diversity Commission was launched by NALC to support the growth of diversity in local councils. Local councils work for their community and are shaped by the community. With this in mind, the Commission has begun work to look at ways for local councils to encourage every member of their community to get involved with what happens locally. We are asking local councils to:
- Encourage more people from diverse backgrounds to stand for election
- Be representative of the community they serve
- Devote more time to engaging those who feel isolated from their community
Take a look at NALC's top tips on how to get involved in NALC's Diversity Commission.
