COUNCIL WATCH is a not-for-profit team

that relies on volunteers.

Our volunteers are ordinary people just like you. 

We run local branches in most Vic Municipalities, we need people just like you to tell the stories that will keep your council accountable.

We believe communities can make a difference and

force councils to be accountable.

 

  • We use social media in local communities to fill the void of local newspapers.

  • We collectively source data and publish it to hold Councils accountable.

  • We extensively work with the Media to address issues.

  • We lobby state lawmakers and Councillors to improve local government​.

More than ever, amidst a cost-of-living crisis - we need value and efficiency from our councils. But they DON'T want to hear that!


Your membership funds are used for basic services for all members, and to conduct research in the public interest.

Committee members receive no pay. We use our own phones, our own time and our own skills and experience. We are committed, professional and persistent.
