Charnwood Borough Council were first awarded the Charter in 2011, re-accredited 2014 and again in January 2018.

The Regional Charter for Councillor Development aims to promote best practice in councillor development. The Charter has an accreditation process set against standards, which have been developed in conjunction with the LGA and other regions around the country.

Launched in 2005 and based on a national template, the Charter aims to help councils adopt a structured approach to member development and to build elected member capacity, enabling members to have the knowledge and skills to effectively fulfil their roles now and to meet the challenges ahead.
