Our work

Local Finance Taskforce

LGiU is setting up a taskforce of senior local government representatives and sector experts to address the precarious financial situation and provide a leading voice to demand answers on how we fund our vital local public services

Homelessness Commission

This Commission will be led by local government and throughout 2018 it will investigate what action councils can take to prevent homelessness.

Public Trust Lab

We will explore issues of trust between the citizen and state and what difference changing levels of trust have on outcomes in services and on a vibrant democracy.


Our¬†challenging and influential publications and long reads stem from our research and development projects and other collaborations. You can also browse back editions of C’llr magazine.


Our current and past projects span a multitude of issues affecting local government from social care to finance to devolution to planning.
