There are a range of different resources available for anyone who is, or looking to be, an independent councillor.

You can read up on the Group's work in our annual reports.

A key way to find out more about what's happening in your local area is to join or make contact with your local campaign network.

You may also find useful information on websites including the Green Party, Independent Network, the Liberal Party, Plaid Cymru, Residents' Associations in the UK and UKIP.

If you're interested in becoming a councillor you can find out how on the ‘be a councillor' website. Here you can find guides, details of events and e-learning modules. Officers in the Independent Group Office are also able to help anyone looking to stand, so feel free to send queries to us on independent.groupLGA@local.gov.uk.
