NALC publishes the 2022 edition of Points of Light
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has published the 2022 edition of Points of Light, highlighting local (parish and town) councils' excellent work to support their communities.
Points of Light aims to promote good practice and raise awareness of local councils' work. This year's edition features examples of facilitating summer activity sessions for local children, running award-winning sports and community facilities, carrying out town centre improvements, funding a community agent post, and supporting a cost-of-living crisis.
Cllr Keith Stevens, chair of NALC, says: "The 2022 edition of Points of Light demonstrates that England's 10,000 local councils are ideally placed to help rebuild communities and support them through the cost of living crisis. As the examples show, they are constantly looking to expand and improve the support they provide to those most in need whilst maintaining existing services to a high standard.
Points of Light is a collection of case studies that include summaries and information on the electorate, precept and expenditure, highlighting the work of local councils.
