The workbook is designed to prompt reflection, insight and to identify actions to improve practice and support your work in developing effective opposition and has four objectives:

  • to stimulate debate on the importance of the contribution opposition councillors and groups make during a long-term emergency
  • to provide practical support for opposition groups in their work on COVID-19
  • to emphasise the role opposition groups can play in reset and recovery
  • to generally ‘shine a light’ on how to develop effective opposition group working.
