How to find details of your local council
By Cara Bevington
To get in touch with your local council to arrange a hand-in of the ‘Refugees Welcome’ petition follow one of these links to find their contact details:
- England Local Councils – fill in your postcode to find your local council.
- Scotland Local Councils
- Northern Ireland Local Councils
- Welsh Local Councils
The quickest way to get in touch is probably to make a quick phone call to the main phone number and find out if the council are planning to meet before 14 September so you can arrange a group of people to head along and present the Refugee Welcome petition.
If they don’t have a meeting planned, you could get together with other local 38 Degrees members and plan an event outside the Town Hall and invite all your local councillors to come and accept a copy of the petition.
Or you could plan to host a stall on the high street to collect more petition signatures and invite local councillors to come and join the stall – this would be another great way to show them how much local support exists.
