Breakthrough Communication are NALC's National Partner for advice, guidance and services on parish and town council communications and engagement, and Data Protection, GDPR and Freedom of Information. The experienced team at Breakthrough Communications understand what good communication and effective compliance look like. As a team of communications professionals, including councillors and clerks, Breakthrough Communications also has insight into the unique world of parish and town councils.


It is increasingly challenging to find people who are willing to put their names forward either at election time or to be co-opted. We explore effective ways councils and councillors can engage people over time, building up their awareness and interest in the work of the council, in order to better promote and demystify the role of a councillor.
