Talk to your councillor | Talk to your councillor | Oldham Council

You can talk to your councillor about a wide range of issues that affect you or your community.

What can a councillor help with?

Councillors are fair and impartial advocates for you.

You can raise any kind of issue with them, but some examples include:

  1. You have had an interaction with the council and you aren't happy with the outcome e.g you reported a problem about fly tipping and it wasn't resolved to your satisfaction.
  2. You have an issue in your neighbourhood e.g. anti social behaviour.
  3.   You have a personal problem e.g. issues with a benefit, or you are concerned your child isn't being taught properly.

How to get in touch

1. In person

You can drop in to a ward surgery without an appointment.

Ward surgeries are held regularly in your neighbourhood, however not all councillors attend every week. Check the schedule to see if your councillor is attending a ward surgery this week

2. Phone or email

You can phone or email your councillor directly.
