Benefits of Membership

Being a member of ALCA is like having an extra person on your council team. Knowledgeable and experienced, there isn’t much that we haven’t seen before. We offer face to face, telephone and e-mail support to all member councils, and on the rare occasions that we cannot help we’ll know someone that can!

“It’s like having an extra member of staff, but at much less cost and no management responsibility!” - Patchway Town Councillor

Member Councils rely on ALCA to keep them up-to-date on all the issues, legislation and developments affecting the sector so that they don’t have to spend their own valuable time and resources doing so.

ALCA is also the body responsible for the checking and submission of Loan Sanction Approvals by all Parish and Town councils to the Secretary of State.

Providing a framework for consultation and arrangements for the effective representation and promotion of Local Councils at local, regional and national levels, ALCA works to maintain relationships with Local Government and community organisations to further the aims of Local Councils.

Parish and Town councils are stronger together, and by collectively supporting ALCA they are assured of quality services, value for money and a strong sector voice.
