Season 1, Ep. 9

As we approach the local elections in May, this episode aims to explore the role of a councillor, challenge stereotypes and bring to life stories of local democracy in action. In this episode, Sophie Page is joined by four councillors from different backgrounds to discuss what it really means to be a councillor − whilst juggling university work, full time jobs and motherhood − and to understand why it’s a role for anyone who is passionate about their local community to consider.
