We are the national voice of local government, working with councils to support, promote and improve local government.
Our e-bulletins are designed to give you relevant, timely information about the areas that matter to you. From daily news headlines to the latest on what's happening in adult social care, there is an e-bulletin for you.
'first' is LGA's membership magazine received by 18,000 councillors and 400 chief executives monthly.
We are a political organisation because it is our elected representatives from all different political parties that direct the organisation through our boards and panels. However, we always strive to agree a common cross-party position on issues and to speak with one voice on behalf of local government.
We aim to set the political agenda and speak in the national media on the issues that matter to council members. The LG Group covers every part of England and Wales and includes county and district councils, metropolitan and unitary councils, London boroughs, Welsh unitary councils, fire, police, national park and passenger transport authorities.
We also work with the individual political parties through the political group offices.
