The purpose of this resource is to explain how your non-for-profit organisation can influence the decisions taken by the local authority – in our case the London Borough of Southwark.

A good starting point to see how the local authority is organised is available under Local Democracy. This covers topics such as:

  • The difference between councillors and council officers
  • The councils process when making a decision
  • What is the cabinet and what happens at its meetings
