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.
Councils take the need to make sound and transparent decisions extremely seriously.
