Supporting Local Councils to Deliver
Outstanding Services

FIND OUT HOW

LGRC brings best practice to every aspect of a Local Council’s activities – from community strategy and planning right through to service delivery and council administration.

We provide four different types of support to Town, Parish and Community Councils to achieve this aim:

  • Consultancy services – for instance to help develop community strategies, carry out governance and staffing reviews, recruit key staff, and conduct community communication surveys.
  • Training – to develop the best practice skills needed by councils to manage assets, procure and deliver services, and engage effectively with your communities, while ensuring compliance with relevant legislation and procedures.
  • Locums and interim staff – to meet a crucial short-term staffing need where the need arises, whether this relates to the role of the clerk, deputy clerk, RFO, or other member of staff, part time or full time.
  • Outsourced services – such as payroll, accounting, and human resources administration, so that both council staff and councillors can utilise more of their time productively to meet community needs.

Locum Services

LGRC can provide a well-qualified locum or interim member of staff to meet your specific short-term need, whether this is for an interim clerk, deputy clerk, RFO, or other member of staff. Our locums are very experienced and qualified local council clerks and other officers who know what needs to be done and can ‘hit the ground running’. Our services are fully compliant with HMRC rules on employment taxation.

Outsourced Services

Our outsourced services enable council staff and councillors to focus their valuable time to greatest effect in the knowledge that routine but time-consuming tasks, such as payroll accounting, bookkeeping, HR administration, document management, and IT service provision are all being carried out securely and to the highest standards.
