Our call for fully funded children's services
Children's services are under pressure, facing a £2 billion funding gap by 2020. Councils have worked hard to protect budgets for essential child protection services, which have led to difficult decisions elsewhere, leaving children and young people unable to access support until they reach breaking point.
Our positive vision for an integrated and devolved employment and skills service
Our proposal brings together advice and guidance, employment, skills, apprenticeship and business support around place, providing a more coherent offer for the unemployed and low skilled of all ages, while supporting local economic growth by forging better links between training providers and employers.
A 24hr tweetathon celebrating the unsung heroes of local government
#OurDay is a yearly social media campaign to reveal a day in the life of local government and how councils deliver 800+ services on a day-to-day basis. In 2017, #OurDay took place on 21 November.
Our call to devolve powers to local areas
Devolution to local areas can bring economic, political and social benefits to communities across the country. Our online resource details what powers councils have already been given and what they're doing with them, as well as tools to help your council negotiate further devolution.
Finding new councillors
Increasing the pool of talent from which councillors are elected is a key task for local government. We need different kinds of people willing to stand for election so that parties get a choice of quality candidates.
