About this Event

Join Citizens’ Assembly South Tyneside

Launching 26th October 2019

Why we need a Citizens’ Assembly

As citizens have little influence in politics, democracy is weakened, even undermined. Building Citizens’ Assembly South Tyneside or CAST will give us a much-needed independent, democratic voice. This is made more urgent by the UK's crisis of democracy.

As MP Emma Lewell-Buck said after our June planning meeting at South Shields Museum and Art Gallery, a local Citizens’ Assembly is the basis for “community-driven, people-powered change”.

Our aims are

• to represent the diverse views of the community of South Tyneside, supporting campaigns to protect services, amenities and the environment

• to hold to account the work of all local authority, health and other public bodies

• to learn from and relate to the community’s concerns about the issues important to them

• to develop, propose and advocate policies that enhance the well-being of the community as a whole

Why you/your organisation should be a member of CAST

• Unity is our strength! A strong, diverse Assembly which cuts across party ties and loyalties will strengthen our community

• you will reach a wide audience with your campaigns and ideas

• working together we can attract expert advice and funding for CAST

• pooling our skills and knowledge, we will develop policies that benefit all of our communities

• as an Assembly Member you will create a badly-needed, new democratic voice for South Tyneside

Register today to come October 26 when you can become a member of CAST.
