Local Partnerships is jointly owned by HM Treasury, the Local Government Association and the Welsh Government. We were formed in 2009 to help the public sector deliver local services and infrastructure.

Local Partnerships’ main responsibility is to deliver expert support to the public sector that provides confidence, additional capacity and commercial capability, helping make best use of limited resources as demands for services continue to rise.

We work with local and national government and other public sector organisations to deliver effective, timely and affordable solutions to the challenges they face – for the public good.

Our Impact 2018-19

To celebrate our tenth birthday we have launched our 2018-19 impact report, celebrating the successes we have achieved over the last year and looking back at those achieved since our inception in 2009.

We deliver national programmes of support, commissioned by central government departments but delivered locally, such as assisting councils in the 15 most polluted urban areas across England improve air quality.

Our Impact 2017-18

In 2018 we produced our first impact report and we made a commitment to produce one every year.

Our impact report reflects the activities of Local Partnerships and the successes we have helped our clients achieve in 2017-18. During this period we continued to deliver the well-regarded services that are familiar to our partners across areas such as waste collection and disposal, renegotiation of public sector contracts, energy, digital transformation, keeping projects and programmes on track, and helping councils tackle the housing crisis.

Our strategic position across national and local government gives our clients a unique insight into current best practice and market intelligence from across the UK, improving your chance to succeed.


We provide short, inexpensive but effective reviews to project owners on high risk projects or programmes where public sector organisations have to keep them on track.

Devolution, transformation & commercialisation

We support councils in their response to the public sector reform agenda, social investment and councils’ transformation programmes to create more efficient or alternative service delivery models.


We support local authorities that seek to take an active role in the energy market.

Welsh Government Energy Services

We provide support to the Welsh Government to deliver Welsh Government Energy Services.


We work on physical development, property and asset management, including asset rationalisation. We support local enterprise partnerships, regeneration teams, and those responsible for enterprise zones and housing delivery.


Our infrastructure work boosts the capacity and capability of our clients. We act as “critical friend”, helping them to plan strategically, solve complex commercial issues and increase delivery confidence.

Integrating health & social care

We support councils and other third sector organisations navigate the complex processes and mechanisms required to meet the challenge of integrating health and social care, and develop and deliver a system that will be fit for the future.


We review and support the renegotiation of public sector contracts to make savings, including reducing the cost of complex PFI contracts, and providing support with the management of outsourced contracts.


Re:fit is a procurement initiative for public bodies wishing to implement energy-efficiency and local energy-generation measures to their buildings or their estate and support services.


Or “other”. There are a number of projects we are working on that do not fall into the traditional categories.

Local Partnerships’ expert advice has helped us resolve a range of PFI contract issues. They identified savings within our projects and have supported us in their implementation.  Their commercial expertise is helping us get the most from refinancing our BSF projects and is delivering significant savings. These are valuable resources in the current financial climate that the Council is able to reinvest into its front line council services.
