Social media is changing the way we work, socialise and govern. It can also help councils save money. This new publication shows how social media can be used to achieve more for less.

The Guide outlines how councillors are already using social media to engage with local residents and campaign on important local issues. It describes how councils can use social media more effectively to support better services for local people. It also describes the role that councillors can take in leading this digital revolution.

It has been developed by the Improvement and Development Agency, the Leadership Centre for Local Government and the National Association of Local Councils and Standards for England.

The Guide is available from IDeA.
