LGA Independent

The Independent Group represents councillors in England and Wales who are Independent, Green or from smaller parties. We provide our members with a voice at the national level and work within the cross-party Local Government Association (LGA) to ensure that the values and interests of our members are represented.

As elections approach, we are working with members and candidates to ensure they’re ready for May. You can find out more about our Be a Councillor work and Candidate School as well as our challenge to government around campaigning guidance

If you are an Independent Councillor or thinking of standing as one do get in touch – we have a range of resources available to help you be election-ready. 

The LGA Election Hub is also extremely helpful and links to current guidance.


You can find out more about who we are and the support we provide on this website. You can also get in touch with the Group Office by emailing Independent.GroupLGA@local.gov.uk or ringing 0207 664 3224.
