ABOUT US

 

Local Partnerships is jointly owned by the Local Government Association, HM Treasury and the Welsh Government.

Our purpose is to help public sector organisations face the ever-increasing challenge of meeting rising demands for services, with shrinking budgets. We work with authorities to develop their commercial capabilities, helping them achieve and maintain financial resilience.

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 devolved administrations.

Our team of specialists brings a formidable combination of public and private sector experience, offering the highest quality and most effective support to the public sector. We are a hands-on organisation and work collaboratively for the benefit of our clients, often sitting alongside project teams, rather than providing advice from afar. We provide capacity and capability where it is needed.

Our support is especially relevant in helping councils and combined authorities with their responsibilities to shape and create place-based growth. This includes the increasing requirements for housing delivery, and the planning and funding of social, digital and enabling infrastructure.

1 July 2019 marks the tenth anniversary of Local Partnerships’ incorporation. We are very proud of the successes we have helped our clients achieve over the last decade. We remain dedicated to helping local and national government, and other public sector organisations, deliver services even more efficiently and effectively.

We provide an interface between central government and local delivery.

TESTIMONIALS

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.
