The Local Government Association is the national voice of local government in England, representing around 350 local authorities. It is led by a Board of elected councillors, supported by officers. Alongside its policy and communication and representation functions, it also provides support to local authorities to improve. Social care for both children and adults is an important part of this support. Our support is based on Sector Led Improvement principles and covers a wide range of areas in commissioning, practice, work with partners, and enabling functions such as technology, information, and value for money. We do this with a wide range of partners at both national and local levels including those who draw on social care.
