Join us – Become a member of It’s Our City!

It’s Our City! is a politically-independent, community-led network of residents in Sheffield thinking, talking and working together on issues of common concern to us all.

One of these issues is making our City Council serve communities in Sheffield much better than they do.

In 2018 we developed 5 pledges that we want all our councillors to sign up to:

  • Rebuilding our local democracy
  • Listening to the experience and viewpoints of the communities of Sheffield
  • Supporting competent, genuine partnership with local businesses, charities and talent
  • Putting people before profits
  • Putting the values of public life into practice

During the 2018 local elections, 6 prospective councillors, from different parties, signed up to our pledges. We organised activities in these 6 wards to promote our pledges and the candidates that committed to them. At the election, 5 of the candidates were successful and became new councillors for our city. We will be encouraging and supporting them in putting the pledges they committed to into practice.

In the summer of 2018 and beyond, we are planning more activities to promote our 5 pledges. If you care about Sheffield and want to see something change, please join in!
