Society of Local Council Clerks - our partners

The Society of Local Council Clerks (SLCC) is the professional body for local council clerks and senior council employees. Its membership is steadily growing and now represents clerks to over 4,700 councils in England and Wales.

The Society's vision statement:
"To provide training, guidance, advice and support to members so that they can develop the professional skills, knowledge and experience necessary for them to best serve their councils and communities; and through this develop the overall recognition and status of their profession."

Many councils realise the benefits of having a clerk who is properly trained, fully briefed on the issues of the day and can get fast accurate advice to problems that they may face. In fact, over 90% of members' councils willingly pay for their clerks' subscriptions to the Society as encouraged by the Local Government Act.

The Society of Local Council Clerks is developing fast and is increasingly recognised as the body which represents and promotes 'best practice' in the sector.

Membership is open to all full time, part time and deputy clerks and other senior employees of town, parish or community councils and parish meetings in England and Wales.

The Voice of the Councillor

The Councillor Commission – organised by the local government magazine TheMJ and De Montfort University Leicester and supported by NALC – publish its final report 'The Voice of The Councillor'. When the Commission was launched we pressed for our sector and our 10,000 councillors not to be overlooked, securing representation on the Commission and a dedicated stream of work to ensure the voice of parish and town councillors was heard. The 124 page report (which is in plain language and easy to read!) includes a dedicated chapter on parish and town councillors and four specific recommendations out of the twenty in total.

Vital Signs - Gloucestershire

This report brings together statistics from a range of national and local data sets, with the results from a survey of Gloucestershire residents. In bringing this information together, the six vital sign themes enable us to understand how Gloucestershire is performing statistically in relation to the rest of the UK, as well as sharing the view of people living in the county.

"The majority of people living in the county want to live in an area where everyone has the opportunity to flourish physically, intellectually, mentally and spiritually.

However, this reports highlights the fact that there are significant inequalities in our midst. Nor everyone, for example, has the same access to adequate housing. Fuel and food poverty exist. There are different health outcomes for people living within a few miles of one another..."
