AS A RESIDENT

JS46227485 (1)

When Central and Local Government are not acting in the interest of citizens, we must call them to account and demand change. Debt Resistance UK can facilitate citizen-led local action by providing information and tools for those who want to challenge their Council’s financial decision.

Councils have a duty to conduct their affairs in the best interest of residents ensuring best value from public spending. As a resident, you have significant powers to ensure councils are held to account for the financial decision they make on your behalf.
