It takes all sorts - Local councils: represent your community, make a difference (2011) is a booklet produced by National Association of Local Councils (NALC) highlighting the difference you can make by representing your community on your local council.

It explains the role of local councils and local councillors and explains how you can get involved. The booklet also features the thoughts of current councillors from around the country explaining a little about why they represent their communities.

You may find this document useful if you are considering standing for your local town or parish council or if you are curious about the role of local councils and local councillors.
