BE A COUNCILLOR: Why you should stand for Council

Welwyn Hatfield Liberal Democrats have a strong and proud tradition of working hard “all year round, not just at election time.” If you care about the area that you live or work in and the issues facing local people, you could be a councillor.

Is this the year you decide to make a difference? 

Being a candidate is an empowering and an effective way to bring change to your local area and the UK. If you are passionate about your community, we need people like you.

We welcome applications from people from all walks of life: there is no such thing as a typical Lib Dem councillor.  We want you to bring your unique background and talents to our group!

Our approvals process is designed to be inclusive, transparent and clear. It assesses competencies and skills rather than qualifications and who you know.

Maybe you've been doing voluntary work, bringing up a family, or doing a job not directly related to politics. Your transferable skills will be recognised amd appreciated.

So, what next?
