The LGA has re-launched the national shared services compendium and map which now shows that at least 337 councils across the country are engaged in 325 shared service arrangements resulting in £278 million of efficiency savings. At least 95 per cent of all English councils are sharing services with other councils.
Due to the sheer number of shared service examples occurring across the country we have changed the appearance and layout of the map to make it more user-friendly.
Simply click on a region follow the link to view the shared services in that region. Then select the shared service arrangement you would like to view and a box will pop up with a description of that partnership, the councils involved and the (£) efficiency savings made to date. You can also select ‘category' below the map to view shared services arrangement by type (for example, Environment, Transport and Waste).
To enable councils to make the most of the data we hold on shared services we are making the source data available.
The LGA gives no guarantee of the accuracy or completeness of this data, and provides in good faith to help councils further explore shared services options.
If your council is invoved in a shared service that is not featured on this map, please contact:
