NALC launches its latest online event on community outreach

The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has added a new online event on local (parish and town) councils and community outreach, which takes place on 14 December 2022.

In the last two decades, there have been numerous attempts to reconcile public service delivery locally with the needs of citizens. However, this has not always been achieved. The landscape of public service delivery remains complex, coordinated through a mixture of public, private, and voluntary organizations.

In the same time frame, the local (parish and town) council sector has grown, with around 300 new local councils. Local councils are integral to vibrant and thriving communities with a wide range of powers but limited duties. Increasingly principal authorities are devolving services to local councils, but harnessing this potential is difficult due to financial, logistical, and power barriers.

Join us to learn more about how local councils can overcome these obstacles, engage in meaningful community outreach, and improve local service delivery.
