Don’t just hope for a better Newcastle… help us make it happen
Can you help us transform our city?
Due to recent boundary changes, all 78 members of Newcastle City Council will be up for election.
This presents an opportunity to challenge the politician councillors who have failed our city for too long. Many of their priorities are not our priorities.
The Newcastle upon Tyne Community First Party was created by ordinary local people rooted in the community who want to bring real change to our city. We want to hand control of the council to ordinary local people and focus the council on our priorities.
Pulling together a team of 78 candidates is a big challenge for a small local party with limited resources compared to the national parties and that is why we are appealing for volunteers now.
To bring about a change to the way our city is run, we need the support of our supporters from across the city. Finding people willing to stand as active candidates in our target wards is a high priority but we need people in all areas and some will not be able to give as much time and energy as others.
Whether you have stood for election for one of the national parties and got fed up with their lack of commitment to Newcastle or have never stood in an election before, we want to hear from you. As a council candidate, you can help local people and have real influence in your community.
However much time or commitment you can give, we want to hear from you.
Standing as a candidate is important because it allows people across the city the opportunity to vote for community based candidates.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss standing for the council with one of our team.
