The LGA is the national voice of local government and our mission is to support, promote and improve councils.
We work with councils to achieve our shared vision for local government by focusing our efforts where we can have real impact, being bold and ambitious, and supporting councils to make a difference, deliver and be trusted.
We are a membership organisation. In total, 423 local authorities are members of the LGA for 2012-13. These include English local councils, Welsh councils via the Welsh LGA and fire, National Park, passenger transport and police authorities, plus one town council.
