NLGN at Party Conferences 2011 – Ripping up the Rule Book

NLGN has over a decade’s worth of experience at organising high profile, timely and engaging debates and events at party conferences. This year we will be hosting a series of fringes in partnership with May Gurney.

Ripping up the Rule Book: Transforming universal services
What will universal services such as Libraries, Environmental Services and Local Transport Services look like in 2015 and beyond? Join us at the conferences to debate how local authorities can be challenged to think innovatively about transforming services.
