LGA Independent Group Report 2020

This Annual Report provides reports from our Group’s leadership, peers, board and committee representatives, outlining our achievements over the last year.

As the COVID-19 pandemic has continued to sweep across our world, our councillors across England and Wales have done incredible work assisting those in need, advising and leading in our councils and in our communities. This annual report, published in November 2020, focuses on our achievements of 2019/20, including the start of the lockdown from 24 March. 

Our councils and communities have faced unparalleled challenges and our councillors have stepped up to provide local leadership, support and assurance when central government has struggled. It is therefore no wonder that local government remains the most trusted. 

Thanks to all our members, council and LGA officers, colleagues and supporters who have gone above and beyond in their efforts to support residents in exceptional circumstances.
