Our improvement offer

The LGA has a range of practical support available, on a free of charge and/or subsidised basis, to enable local authorities to exploit the opportunities that this approach to improvement provides.


This includes support of a corporate nature such as leadership programmes, peer challenge, LG Inform (our benchmarking service) and programmes tailored to specific service areas such as children's, adults', health, care, financial, culture, tourism, sport and planning services.

How to access our sector-led improvement offer

Local authorities can access support through our regionally based Principal Advisers (PAs). PAs are the LGA's focal point for discussions with local authorities about their improvement needs and the support we can make available, working with existing sector-owned improvement bodies at sub-national level and with colleagues supporting children's services improvement and adults/health.
