Become a Lib Dem councillor

Our councillors are a team of hard-working residents who believe in core Lib Dem principles of fairness and equality, who represent their constituents and work to make their towns a better place for their neighbours and residents.

It's a group that gladly welcomes new members - all of our councillors are regular Lib Dem members who felt they had something to offer their communities.

Have you thought about becoming a councillor for your area? If you believe what we believe, then you could be one of our candidates at the next election. Our councillors work at parish, borough and county levels in a range of positions and levels of commitment, starting from a couple of hours a week. Below, you can find some videos from our borough councillors about what inspired them to get involved.

Anybody who is a member of the Liberal Democrats can be one of our candidates, with the full backing of our campaign team and volunteers to guide you through the process.
