Leading the way


Empowering councils to support the recovery

LG Mutual

The launch of the Local Government Mutual will be a cost effective alternative to traditional insurance, governed and led by its council members who will reap the financial benefits

Sharing services

A spin-off of the Productivity Experts programme, the Shared Service Expert Programme can help connect your council with others wishing to start a new shared service.

Councils and careers

Essex County Council is working in partnership with Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock councils, business and education partners to build a local skills offer that meets the needs of local employers and gives residents the tools they need to prosper.
