Who We Are
We are a not for profit organisation that exists to help organisations deliver better outcomes with and for local people. All 41 local authorities in the North West, together with many of the fire and rescue services, police and crime commissioners’ offices and joint boards, are members.
Established in 1919 (we are fast approaching our 100th birthday!) by local authorities as an independent organisation, we have a proud tradition of supporting public service organisations. Our organisation is funded by a mixture of member subscriptions and income earned through not for profit consultancy services. Our governance is provided by an Executive Board of Councillors from across the North West.
