What does your local councillor do?

The role of a councillor

Councillors are elected by the community they represent to determine how local services and various statutory and non-statutory activities are funded and prioritised.

Councillors act as community leaders and champions; deal with casework and sign-post people to services and other agencies. Councillors make decisions about how council services are run; are involved in determining the councils overall budget; help set standards for the various services offered by the council, support constituents with problems they might have with the Council or other agencies and ensure that local services are properly provided.
