Formed by Parish Councils --- Run for Parish Councils --- Delivering to Parish Councils

Following a decision of the Executive Committee on the 5th March 2018, from the 1st April 2018 the Leicestershire and Rutland Association of Local Councils (LRALC) is a limited company, LRALC Limited. Its work includes representing, training and advising the parish (including town) councils of Leicestershire and Rutland, who form the grass roots tier of local government in England. Put simply, we are our members.

We offer members a resource of vital, operational information and facilitate communication at all levels of the parish network - district, county, regional and national.

As a limited company membership association we are unable to deal with queries from the public, but we are happy to make general information available through this website.

New NALC publication shines a light on 150 local councils

Posted: Fri, 18 Jan 2019 08:33 by Jake Atkinson

Points of Light is a collection of case studies highlighting the work that local (parish and town) councils are undertaking to support their communities. Well done to Anstey, Syston, and Uppingham councils for their excellent work being highlighted in the publication. More »

The 2019 edition contains 150 case studies each featuring a summary of the work carried out alongside electorate, precept and expenditure figures of the local councils involved. The case studies have been compiled to promote good practice and raise awareness of the diverse range of services local councils are facilitating.

Providing loans to cover the cost of school uniforms, setting up a health and wellbeing board, regenerating a town centre, running the local library and supporting people with dementia are just some of the examples of activity contained in this edition.

Research for Points of Light has come from a range of sources, including articles from LCR magazine, Council Spotlight, entries to NALC's Star Council Awards and local news stories. NALC hopes this guide inspires all local councils to take that extra step to support their community and aides understanding of what they do.
