In February 2020 the Local Government Association (LGA) conducted a survey of Directors of Environment or equivalent of all councils in England. The purpose of the survey was both to assess what actions councils have already taken to mitigate and/or adapt to climate change and to ask them what policy changes would enable them to do this in future more effectively. At total of 98 responded – a response rate of 29 per cent.
This report was commissioned by the sector-led Care and Health Improvement Programme (CHIP), co-produced and delivered by the Local Government Association (LGA) and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) in England.
An online survey is emailed to heads of human resources, or a nominated contact, in councils from England, Wales and Northern Ireland on alternate Wednesdays. The data requested relates to the week ending the preceding Friday.
This research was commissioned by the Local Government Association in December 2019 in response to a growing concern that more and more children were missing out on their entitlement to a formal full-time education.
