Cardiff Council

Data Cymru message

We want our councils to be representative of the communities they serve and the greater the diversity of councillors the broader range of views are able to be considered in the way councils plan and deliver services. During the last few years the Welsh Government has taken forward initiatives to encourage people from under-represented groups to stand for local government elections.

To help us to measure the progress being made, every local authority is required to conduct a survey of candidates at each local government election. The aim of the survey is to provide information about the pool of people actively engaged in seeking election.

While you are not required to complete the survey, either wholly or in part, I would encourage you to do so. It is only through your support in submitting the survey that we are able to have a clear understanding of the range of people putting themselves forward to become councillors. For this election, Data Cymru will conduct the survey on behalf of local authorities in Wales. The data they collect will then be provided to each local authority the Welsh Government will be provided with a set of anonymised all Wales data. A report will be published based on the results.

The survey will be available online and the link will be shared with you when you receive your confirmation of candidacy. Paper surveys and other accessibility options will be available upon request from Data Cymru, please contact​​​​​​​​​​​​External link opens in a new window​​ or call 029 2090 9500 for more information.
