Getting Your Message Across

Local councils have an overarching role to play in their area which no other body can provide. In performing a community leadership role, councils can articulate and represent the views and needs of the local community more effectively. This will involve listening to the local community and communicating what it is doing through a variety of mediums (some of which are detailed in this toolkit). If the community knows and understands what the council is doing for them, research has proved that its reputation will be higher.
