Membership benefits

Our service offer continually adapts to meet the needs of local councils and we seek to increase or enhance the benefits year on year.  This includes topic based webinars working in partnership with colleagues such as District Councils, the Police and Crime Commissioner through to specialist service providers such as Parish Online.  


Membership includes access to the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) who charge a separate fee which we incorporate into our annual invoice.  NALC provide a national voice for the 10,000 town and parish councils across England, campaigning on their behalf and providing the following services:

  • campaigning and lobbying for the issues that are important to local councils and communicating views to government and a wide range of influential organisations in the pubic, private and charity sector

  • legal, accounts and audit advice - written, telephone and digital from NALC Legal

  • publications including the good councillor guides, neighbourhood planning and a range of toolkits

  • webinars, conferences, events and training - providing local councils with an opportunity to hear from a wide range of speakers and perspectives
