OUR VALUES

We believe:
  • It’s essential that community level local councils are revitalised and rebuilt to make them fit for the 21st century
  • That community level local councils can attract a new generation of voters and candidates
  • That party politics has no place in councils – they should be run by communities, for communities
  • Independent community-led councils are much more effective and democratic than councils run by party politicians
Our campaign ethos:
  • To keep campaigns lighthearted, pragmatic and fun
  • To work with other groups that aim to empower communities to stand for election
  • To encourage and support underrepresented sections of our communities to stand for election
  • To be ambitious about creating positive local change
  • To grow and nurture the national community of people want to change how councils are run and are uniting behind a vision of how things could be different
We don’t just support any independents. They need to:
  • Have participation (i.e. democracy) as a central aim
  • Work alongside their communities to find out what they actually want and need
  • Be ambitious about creating positive local change
  • Work to increase the empowerment and representation of marginalised groups 
  • Have established, or are looking to establish, positive, inclusive ‘Ways of Working’. This is how we will transform ineffective, corrupt and undemocratic councils
