First formed in 2017, the partnership has helped deliver tailor-made insurance solutions that meet the needs of the local (parish and town) council sector.
Through the partnership, BHIB Councils Insurance will be the headline sponsor of NALC’s events and Star Council Awards, along with NALC being an introducer appointed representative of BHIB Limited, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
Cllr Keith Stevens, NALC chair, said: “NALC’s growing range of partners play a vital role in helping us support England’s 10,000 local councils by providing specialist products and services.
“Without doubt, BHIB Councils Insurance has shown a strong commitment and understanding of the sector. They are equally committed and uniquely placed to work with NALC, county associations and local councils to develop a risk management and insurance offer tailored to our needs.
