Local Government Association

The Local Government Association (LGA) is the national voice of local government. We work with councils to support, promote and improve local government.

Lead Organisation: Local Government Association

Welcome to the LGA Network on Knowledge Hub

The LGA is a politically-led, cross party organisation which works on behalf of councils to ensure local government has a strong, credible voice with national government. We aim to influence and set the political agenda on the issues that matter to councils so they are able to deliver local solutions to national problems. Supporting local government as the most efficient and accountable part of the public sector, the LGA will play a leading role in improvement and innovation so that councils can continue to make a difference in their local areas and to the lives of their residents. The LGA will fight local government’s corner, supporting councils through challenging times and focusing our efforts where we can have real impact. The LGA covers every part of England and Wales, including county and district councils, metropolitan and unitary councils, London boroughs, Welsh unitary councils, fire and rescue and national park authorities.

Please join our network area to hear about KHub groups the LGA supports.
