Welcome to this website for councillors in the UK. Our main targets are those councillors at the grassroots - town and parish and backbench councillors but it is open to all councillors.
This site offers a social networking function that is free to use and password protected for councillors only. If you are a councillor, you can register to use the social network pages. Just click on the 'Register' button on the top right of this home page. This will take you into a world where you can set up your own private and discreet networks and circles by invitation only that are available to those councillors who register to use the site.
The information side of this site is open to everyone. This provides snapshots of news in a digest and signposts for other areas such as films and articles.
Councillor Direct is a Community Interest Company. This website has been conceived, designed and set up by a number of partners who are directors of the company and who have gathered a great deal of experience as councillors themselves and in local government as well as experience working in communications in the private, public and voluntary sectors and in public involvement.
This site is totally independent of government, government agencies, political parties and any other local government organisations.
Please use it and enjoy!
