Leeds City Council is looking to recruit 6,000 people to form a citizens’ panel to give the public a say on key issues.
The aim of the panel is to establish what Leeds people want from their public services, such as transport, health and well-being and environmental and leisure services, and the initiative is supported by NHS Leeds and other partners.
The Council wants to establish a panel which has a balanced mix of people reflecting the diversity of the city. So far some 2,000 people have signed up to be members of the panel, but more people are needed if the panel is to be truly representative.
Panel members, who have to be 18 or over, need to be willing to spend a small amount of time participating in surveys and discussions but will have the satisfaction of knowing that they are helping to influence local policies and practice.
