Services

NALC operates a specialist legal advice service which is free to all councils in full voting membership of LRALC.

It also negotiates recommended national terms and conditions of service for Local Council employees.

NALC is in regular dialogue with Government Ministers, Civil Servants and the Local Government Association (LGA) so that issues affecting parish councils can be effectively represented.

NALC leads on the National Training Initiative and the Quality Council Initiative.

All parishes must pay a fee to be a member of NALC. This fee is based on the number of electorate within the parish.
