How to Keep it Local: Five step guide for councillors and commissioners

Faced with limited choices when it comes to providing quality, cost-effective public services, commissioners are being pushed into inefficient, centralised services and mega contracts in a bid to answer austerity's challenges.

But there is a better way: Our Keep it Local campaign calls for locally-commissioned and delivered public services which provide substantially better outcomes and value than standardised, one-size-fits-all services.

Locality's new How to Keep it Local: Five step guide for councillors and commissioners is the handbook for pioneering councillors and commissioners across the country who prioritise local commissioning and delivery, leading to improved services for local people, savings for councils and economic resilience in their communities.

Based on our five key principles of how to Keep it Local, the guide busts myths around commissioning locally and showcases the benefits of working with community anchor organisations.

Smaller Councils: Working Together.

This is a template for clustering examples from Smaller Councils. The NALC Smaller Councils Committee would be grateful if smaller councils (those with less than 6000 population or an annual income of £250,000) who have "clustered" completed this form.

The Committee is interested in gathering examples where councils have clustered together (either with larger councils or with other smaller councils) to jointly deliver a project for their communities. The best examples will be collated in a booklet and used as examples of best practice across the sector and to government and other stakeholders.

The deadline for responses (to NALC) is 30 May 2013.

What is Localism

We have long supported the notion of devolution and a fundamental shift of power to councils, communities, neighbourhoods and individuals. Empowered local people coming together to take more responsibility for their community through local councils is a tried, tested and trusted model of grassroots neighbourhood action. This is real localism.

In this pamphlet parliamentarians from the three main political parties as well as other influential thinkers share their thoughts on localism. And on what they think localism and the concept of Big Society means to local councils. Cllr Michael Chater Chairman, NALC.
