NALC Leaders talk: Building back resilient communities

Thu, 29 Apr 2021 12:00

The power of a local council and community business partnership

12:00 - 13:15

Sponsors: BHIB Councils Insurance, Blachere Illumination and CCLA

Before lockdown, many local (parish and town) councils across England had already proven beyond measure their worth to the resilience agenda in their communities. Coronavirus has now permanently embedded the crucial role local councils have to play in community resilience in their areas. Post COVID-19, this a timely moment for the sector to consider how local (parish and town) councils, together with community businesses, can enhance, strengthen and shape communities.

Speakers: Hannah Barrett, senior project manager at the Plunkett Foundation, Danielle Cohen, development manager at Power to Change and Alan Collard, an adviser at the Plunkett Foundation and chair of Toppesfield Parish Council.

Effective recruitment 10.00 - 12.00

Strategies to identify and recruit new local councillors

How can you effectively find and encourage people to stand or be co-opted as town or parish councillors? In many areas it is increasingly hard to find people who are willing to put their names forward either at election time or to be co-opted. We show you effective ways parish councils and councillors can encourage more people to come forward, and this interactive session explores practical ways to do just that.

Extraordinary Parish Council CANCELLED

(The government announced 25th March it would not extend the emergency pandemic powers to enable remote meetings. This forced the Parish Council to reassess how to retain the digital benefits with hybrid meetings that combine in-person and remote attendance. However, hybrid meetings are technically more challenging to achieve. Physical meetings, to which all members of the public are entitled to attend, are a health risk during the current pandemic).

NALC Leaders talk: Building back resilient communities

Wed, 26 May 2021 12:00

How to get young people involved with the council

12:00 - 13:15

Before lockdown, many local (parish and town) councils across England had already proven beyond measure their worth to the resilience agenda in their communities. Coronavirus has now permanently embedded the crucial role that local councils have to play in community resilience in their areas.

Post COVID-19, how can you get young people to become involved with the council? Where is the next generation of councillors in your community? Join NALC in exploring the big questions on how and what local (parish and town) councils can do to reach younger people in their community. A panel of young councillors will give precious insights into what made them join their local council, the reasons behind them, how they went from resident to councillor, and what local councils can do to engage with their young residents.
