LGiU is a think tank and local authority membership organisation. We are all about people and the places where we live: we are about the everyday essentials that make life work – health, schools, homes, jobs, support, open spaces and the rest. The thread that weaves through all our work is our core belief that all these essentials are best when they are designed and delivered locally.

Libraries, parks and green spaces, arts and leisure centres and sports and recreation: theses are the things that make up the social fabric of a community. But they are also struggling most in the context of cuts. LGiU will be looking at the value of prevention and new models of delivery in the current climate. We'd like to invite anyone interested in this topic area to join the conversation here.

The government's commitment to devolution deals has major implications for local governance, growth, leadership and democracy. But what will devolution really mean for local authorities and their communities? LGiU will be working with councils and partners to help them navigate this journey. We'd like to invite anyone with an interest to join the conversation here.
