Ward Councillors


There are many things that your fantastic Salford and Eccles ward councillors can help with. If you have any enquiries or issues, these are some of what your councillors can do:


  • help you if you are dissatisfied with a council service by advising or directing you to someone who can help sort out your problem and can sometimes progress the case on your behalf
  • be visited at advice surgeries where you can discuss your problem or ideas to improve the ward and or borough
  • on some occasions make home visits or solve issues over the phone
  • as community leaders, put forward proposals to improve the ward they represent which may include bringing together different community groups to develop a case for change
  • support local partnerships and organisations
  • campaign on local issues
  • represent your community within the council and to other organisations


Councillors are elected to represent the people of Salford. As a member of the council, he or she has to consider not just the interests of the local community but also what is in the best interests of Salford as a whole.
