Empowering Communities Development Officer
The Empowering Communities Development Officer works with the local councillors and community to organise ward meetings. They also organise the multi-ward forum meetings for their area.
In each multi-ward forum, a Councillor will be a community champion and will chair these meetings, ensuring they operate effectively.
Area Multi-Ward Forums
Twice a year, the council hosts a multi-ward meeting for residents across several wards. These meetings are mainly for funding programmes information, process, and announcement of decisions.
Local Ward Meetings
Each ward meets with their councillors a few times per year to talk about issues affecting their neighbourhood
