Supporting Local Councils in Leicestershire & Rutland

New NALC publication shines a light on 150 local councils

New NALC publication shines a light on 150 local councils

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.

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.
