Our Partnership with NALC

BHIB Councils Insurance are proud to be partnered with the National Association of Local Councils (NALC).

A Message from NALC

Established in 1947, the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) is a membership body representing the interests of Parish and Town Councils. We work in partnership with County Associations to support, promote and improve Local Councils.

A ‘Local Council’ is a universal term for community, neighbourhood, parish and town councils in England and are the first tier of local government and are statutory bodies. They serve electorates ranging from tens to hundreds to thousands of people and are independently elected and raise their own precept (a form of council tax). There are circa-10,000 Local Councils in England and around 80,000 councillors who serve in these.

We believe that vibrant and dynamic Local Councils will help communities to build strength and resilience and continue to improve the quality of life of residents. We are here to ensure all Local Council communities are given a democratic voice.

In the current climate with Local Councils providing an ever growing range of services it is more important than ever to have sector experts we can rely on who can support our endeavours and arrange the right protection for councils delivering services and representing communities. That’s why NALC has partnered with BHIB Councils Insurance to enable Local Councils to be as effective and efficient as possible within their communities – and we thank them for all their continued support.

Supporting you, supporting the community

Our partnership with NALC enables us to work directly with the Clerks, Councillors, Officers and those who make the running of a Council possible. Working closely together allows us to fully understand how a Council operates which enhances our ability to support you, whilst you are supporting the community.
We are delighted to be sponsors of the NALC Annual Conference, the largest event in the Local Councils sector, and also the headline sponsor of the NALC Star Council Awards, which is a fantastic opportunity for those involved in Local Councils and County Associations to showcase their great work.
