Introduction to our improvement work

Our sector support offer provides councils, councillors and council officers with a range of support across leadership, governance, finance, workforce, place-based vision and demand.


In 2020, independent evaluation of sector-led improvement in local government confirmed that the sector-led improvement approach is widely endorsed by councils. 94 per cent of council leaders say that support from the LGA has had a positive impact on their authority (according to our most recent perceptions survey).

Our 2022/23 sector support offer for councils covers leadership, governance, finance, workforce, place-based vision and demand.

Each year, councillors benefit from this offer in many ways – including access to a range of learning and development opportunities, peer support and other tools and resources.
