One of COSLA’s priorities is to develop the diversity of local elected representatives, addressing barriers and encouraging and supporting a wider range of people to come forward as candidates in local government elections.

Over the coming months we will be sharing stories from elected members, celebrating and encouraging increased diversity. We will hear why people choose to stand for elected office, what they gain from doing so as well as the  barriers and challenges they face and how these are overcome.

Join us as we hear these inspirational stories…
