Local Partnerships’ working arrangements: COVID-19

We are carrying out work as normal to support our clients. Local Partnerships is a geographically dispersed organisation and, as such, we are fully familiar with remote working for all employees. We have contingency measures in place should any members of staff be unable to work owing to Covid-19, or other illness. Contact details for all members of staff are shown on the our team page of our website.

If you have any queries please contact us at lpenquiries@local.gov.uk or on 020 7187 7379.

We are delighted to announce the publication of our impact report for 2019-20. In it we celebrate the successes we have helped our clients achieve over the last year and since our inception in 2009.

The climate crisis featured prominently throughout a busy year that ended in our swift deployment to help councils and government departments grapple with the sudden and unexpected demands imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our green energy and retrofit programmes can help councils develop their responses to the challenges posed by the climate emergency and we will play our part in supporting those plans.

We occupy a unique position in the public sector. We facilitate change by working impartially and collaboratively across all parts of central, local and regional government, and the devolved administrations.

We work solely for the benefit of the public sector. Our experts provide trusted, professional support and advice over multiple disciplines, helping you make best use of limited re-sources as demand for services continues to rise. These include:











Proudly sponsoring The MJ Awards 2020: “Leadership in responding to the climate emergency” 


The climate emergency affects a wide range of service areas. Developing a response and taking critical steps on the trajectory to net zero carbon require leadership, policy development, bold financial and technical solutions, and adaptation.

This year, as part of our work to support local and combined authorities take practical steps to face the huge challenge of tackling the climate crisis, we have developed, and are sponsoring, The MJ Achievement Awards 2020 new category: “Leadership in responding to Climate Emergency”.

The award aims to promote climate leadership and is a great opportunity for local and combined authorities to demonstrate innovation across the areas of energyindustrybuildingstransportfood, and nature-based solutions for the delivery of their targets.

The judges are looking for the best initial response to a declaration of climate emergency. Applications can be submitted by any part of a local authority, or the whole local authority. Entries can include partnership initiatives with other agencies.

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.

Ian Rooth, Head of Finance Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council
