The LGA's mission is to support, promote and improve local government. This is informed and shaped by intelligence and input from local councils.
LGA is a key partner for CLOA and the association advises LGA's Culture, Tourism and Sport Board.
One of CLOA founding principles was to work closely with Government on behalf of culture, tourism and sport public sector services, principally with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport; we aim to strengthen connections with the Department.
Despite shrinking budgets, Local Authorities continue to find innovative ways to support local arts and culture. Arts Council England works in partnership with Local Authorities to help ensure culture is successful and sustainable.
