Former Councillor Survey

This survey contains questions tailored to the experience of former Councillors. It has a focus on obtaining:

  • Helpful advice for potential candidates
  • A true picture of the likely impact on family and employment
  • Reflections of the rewards and incentives associated with being a Councillor
  • Information about any frustrations experienced
  • Recommendations for training and induction
  • Tips for new councillors with a particular focus on balancing work and council commitments.
