We offer a range of programmes and tools to help councils tackle the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities for culture, tourism and sport.
Resources, programmes and case studies:
- 'Leadership Essentials': a series of events designed as themed learning opportunities for councillors. Each event concentrates on a specific portfolio area, such as Planning or Children's Services, or a specific theme, such as communications or digital leadership.
CTS improvement support during COVID-19
The challenges of COVID-19 created unanticipated challenges for the culture, tourism and sport sectors.
Sport and physical activity 2021-22
As communities rebuild from COVID-19, local authorities are developing innovative place-based approaches to understand and respond to local needs. The LGA and Sport England have developed programmes to support officers and councillors to work with communities and partners to co-create approaches to complex challenges, such as health inequalities.
Arts, culture and libraries 2022
The LGA’s important partnership with Arts Council England enables us to provide critical support to our member councils by developing the knowledge and skills of both councillors and officers to champion cultural activity in their local areas during a period of rebuilding, where leadership is needed most.
