Here’s an overview of the Kirklees Democracy Commission Working Group meeting on Monday 27th January 2020 at Dewsbury Town Hall.
Our Working Group discussed our new role profile for Kirklees Councillors, protocols for officers and councillors working together, and the ‘Growing a stronger youth council’ report.
We’re sharing the results of our first Democracy Seekers task, which was all about what councillors do and how we can help councillors and citizens to connect.
Our “Growing a stronger youth council” report shares what young people told us about having a voice, getting involved in community life, and how we can help them to grow the skills, confidence and connections that they want, in the way that they want.
Could you organise an event or activity anywhere in Kirklees during October 2019 that helps people to get involved in our local democracy?
Our Working Group discussed Kirklees Question Time events, the changing councillor role and our work programme over the coming year.
