Factors as varied as employment, transport, housing, and green space all affect people’s health. And over the last four years, councils have undertaken a variety of innovative work with local partners to improve public health outcomes.
A series of Lunch/Dinner discussions to be held across the country for senior local government officials – hosted by NLGN, in partnership with Norse. The theme of this exclusive dinner will be the growing appetite and interest amongst councils to expand commercial activity for future financial resilience.
NLGN’s research and thought-leadership seeks both practical impact for local government and partners, and to influence national policy priorities as they relate to places and public services. Our core focus is on changemaking, a future vision for local government to generate and sustain impact in the future.
Demand pressures are increasing across all public services. As a consequence, increasingly resource, capacity and energy of local services are channelled towards managing and responding to crises and immediate problems, rather than the longer-term prevention and early intervention which so many recognise is required for sustainability.
