Our impact on local government

More than 100 councils trust us to advise and provide services to them, and that’s because we have over 30 years’ experience of working within local government.

We have over 100 consultants across the UK who are working with local councils every day. You can be sure we will draw on this extensive experience and expertise to successfully support your transformation programme.

We are a purpose-driven organisation, dedicated to improving public services for the long term. We have a close working relationship Socitm, through which, over the last seven years we have invested £1.1m back into local government through programmes and initiatives.
