Comms Hub – communications support

A range of guides and resources to help support and advance communications activity at your council.


Welcome to Comms Hub – our online resource to help you to develop and deliver more effective communications.

It has never been more important for councils to communicate effectively with their residents, the media, partners and employees. Whether you need to encourage greater self-service, promote understanding of local priorities, or attract growth and investments, effective communication has the potential to engage communities, challenge misconception, overcome challenges and help your council to achieve its objectives.

In this section you will find advice and guidance on communicating some of the key issues facing local government, alongside examples of best practice from across our membership.

Have any ideas for what you would like to see featured here on Comms Hub? Please contact Claire Thurlow, LGA Communications Improvement Advisor.
