 About us

streetlights-welcome

Our aim is to strengthen the public sector to deliver more effectively, achieve more swiftly, and give value for money to the taxpayer and public service customer.

We achieve this by bringing together a team of leading edge experts solely for the benefit of the public sector and the delivery of public services  and infrastructure. Across our specialist programme teams, we provide trusted, professional support and advice in the following areas:

  • delivery of major infrastructure programmes
  • solving problems
  • achieving savings, eg, PFI contracts
  • identifying funding
  • sourcing and commissioning
  • forming effective partnerships
  • procurement, negotiation and contract management

  • Local Partnerships is owned by HM Treasury and the Local Government Association (LGA). We receive some grant income from the LGA to support the delivery of their local objectives but mostly we have to earn fees from the central government departments and local authorities with whom we work directly.

    Our strategic position in the landscape of national and local government helps those we work with to  get  a  unique  insight  into  current  best  practice and market intelligence from across the UK and avoid making the mistakes others have made.

    In 2012-13 we worked directly with over 200 local councils in England and Wales and, while this represents nearly 65 percent of all councils, we are keen to establish relationships with many more in the year ahead.
