Councillors can help if you are dissatisfied with a council service by advising you or directing you to someone who can help sort out your problem.  Sometimes they can progress the case on your behalf.

As community leaders they put forward proposals to improve their Ward, which may include bringing together different community groups to develop a case for change.
