New Community Leaders

One of our goals at Conservative Friends of India is to help bring on and support a new generation of political leaders. We want to see CF India members and supporters become school governors, volunteers, trustees and contribute to the political process. At every stage, we are here to help you. 

That's why we support the Conservative Party's Become A Councillor campaign.

Becoming a councillor is a uniquely rewarding experience. It gives you the opportunity to help your local community and to be part of a dedicated team providing key services for your area.

Being a councillor is also a great way to gain political experience and useful skills in public speaking, debating and problem solving.

Serving councillors are a broad mix of people from the local community. New councillors are good news. They mean fresh ideas and fresh enthusiasm, and that will be good for your council and your local area.

By becoming a councillor, you really can make a difference to your local community.

Who may become a councillor?

To be eligible you must be:

  • A British subject or a citizen of the Irish Republic or the EU and resident in the UK.
  • At least eighteen years old on the day you are nominated.
  • Either on the electoral register for the council area in which you are seeking election, or have lived or worked in that council area for at least the last twelve months.
  • A member of the Conservative Party.

To find out more, please contact CF India or your local Conservative Association. You can find the latter's details using the postcode search on the Conservative Party website
