National Association of Local Councils
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) is an association of approximately 9,000 independently elected community, parish and town councils in England. The Head Office of the organisation is at 109 Great Russell Street in Bloomsbury, central London.
The main duties of the NALC include lobbying national government on behalf of its members, and their electorates. The association also provides support, advice and training for member councils, as well as holding an annual conference. The NALC also offers advice and technical guidance to individuals or groups who plan to create new councils for unrepresented communities or areas.
All member councils are represented on one of 38 local county associations of the NALC. It is the county associations who coordinate most of the support offered by the NALC to its members. Every county association then elects one representative from their members, who then sits on the associations National Council. It is the National Council that is largely responsible for representing members to national government.
