Our recent Safer and Stronger Communities Board meeting heard from the new Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner Dame Sara Thornton CBE QPM. Supporting councils to tackle modern slavery has been a key priority of the board for several years now, following an early presentation from Dame Sara’s predecessor Kevin Hyland.
Congratulations on being elected as a new councillor from myself and everyone at the LGA. I hope you find your time as an elected representative as rewarding as I have, and the LGA a useful resource. I like to think of us as a family and, like all families, we are here to help you as you take on the role of councillor.
