What we do

LGcommunications (LGcomms) is a national body made up of an association of authorities that works to raise the standard of communications in local government.

We hold regular seminars in different regions of the country, produce publications and briefings on current communications topics, run a training programme for talented Future Leaders and hold a flagship annual Academy – our national conference.

Comms Academy

Academy and Awards

Academy is a yearly event run by LGcomms and the Government Communication Service, which gives communications professionals from all over the country the chance to come together, learn and see the latest best practice in the industry.


LGcomms empowers our communicators to become not just leaders of communications but of local government as a whole
