Volunteering with the Conservative Party is very rewarding. Everything you do, you do safe in the knowledge you are helping your Party to help your community. The polices you voted for, that keep us all safe, our streets clean, create jobs and help those in society who need it most, by volunteering your help, you will ensure we will all benefit from them. You will often find yourself working side by side with your local Councillors and Members of Parliament. Right there shoulder to shoulder delivering the Conservative message. You will have the opportunity to tell them directly what your neighbourhood needs and watch them swing into action. Oh, and the really great part about volunteering? You will make lots of new, like minded friends. Yes we may be all ages, colours religions, but the one thing that unites us all is our support for the Conservative Party. And it’s not all work, we have many social functions too.

You can find our contact details on our home page, or you can use facebook to get in touch with us. You will be so glad you did.


 

Could you become a councillor?

Becoming a councillor is an extremely rewarding experience. It gives you the opportunity to help your local community and be part of a dedicated team providing key services for your area. Being a councillor is a great way to gain political experience and useful skills in public speaking, debating and problem solving.

New councillors are good news. They mean fresh ideas and fresh enthusiasm, and that will be good for your council.

There has never been a better time to be a Conservative councillor. It is a uniquely rewarding experience where you can make a real difference to your local community. With just over 8000 Conservative councillors in England, we are the largest Party in local government and as a result have considerable influence locally and nationally.

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.
