Regional support – 2022/23 highlights

In 2022/23, our far-reaching regional support programme engaged with all 333 councils in England, helping to ensuring that councils had the support they needed to harness opportunities and address challenges.


We provided a wide range of support as part of our regional support offer, including councillor and officer peer support, mentoring and development sessions, and bespoke and tailored support.

Our post-elections support programme is also a central part of this offer. This programme provided targeted support to councils that experienced a change of control or leadership in 2022, helping to smooth political transitions and ensure that members and officers had access to support and resources to deliver effectively in their roles.





During 2022/23 the programme achieved the following key highlights:

  • we engaged 100 per cent of councils with and through our regional support programme
  • 94 per cent of respondents from councils in receipt of post elections support said that this support had helped the council.
