Resetting the relationship between local and national government. Read our Local Government White Paper

20 years of the LGA and local government

For the past 20 years, the LGA has united and strengthened the voice of local government.


Speaking with one credible voice, we have helped influence successive governments, successfully making the case for devolution, bringing public health back into the local government family and securing £2 billion extra to fund our social care - to mention a few achievements.
