Insights Reports

Our Innovation Exchange programme brings together senior officers driving innovation within member local authorities to share ideas, lessons learned and best practice. These events have a heavy focus on the practicalities and detail of innovation, and offer opportunities for substantive engagement on a given issue.

Insights Reports detail the outcomes of these events. They present the key challenges that participants shared, and explore the responses and solutions discussed on the day. They also provide valuable context, summarising interviews that took place with participants before the event, as well as a list of useful resources, links and further reading.

Innovation Briefings

Exclusive to NLGN members, Innovation Briefings are case-study rich and to-the-point briefings which provide a practical framework for how councils have led innovation, overcome problems and applied solutions to specific objectives.

We develop our programme based on active input and feedback from members. Recent and upcoming topics include: establishing trading services; delivering inclusive growth; co-production in practice; and behaviour change.
