Resources for members and those planning to stand as an Independent councillor.


Along with The Campaign Company, the LGA Independent Group have developed and collated a range of resources to help current and prospective Councillors with their campaigning efforts.

We have a campaigns toolkit to help you plan your campaign and Social Media advice if you are looking for an inexpensive way of getting your message out to a wide range of people.

We also recommend visiting this website providing an online archive of political leaflets, which may provide you with some useful ideas. The Independent Network also provides its members with poster and leaflet templates.

Visit our NEW leaflet sharing website, where recent newsletters, leaflets and other campaign materials, shared with us by LGA Independent Group Members, are available for you to use as inspiration.

Other resources

There’s further information available in regards to our Be a Councillor campaign and existing Campaign Networks.

We also have copies of Group Constitutions available on request for those setting up a new Independent Group. Please contact the office for more details.

For members concerned about the new Parliamentary Independent Group causing confusion for your electorate, here is a template press release you can use to clarify and show what you are doing locally.
