LGA is the national voice of local government. We work with councils to support, promote and improve local government. We are a politically led, cross-party organisation that works on behalf of councils to ensure local government has a strong, credible voice with national government. In total 411 local authorities are members of the LGA.

We help organisations across the whole of the public sector find the right commercial solutions covering everything from locum doctors to police cars.

Set up in 1974 to provide a range of products and services to the public sector through a joint committee structure, we also offer a comprehensive range of products to private sector customers through the YPO limited company business.
We’ve seen many challenges in the public sector over the 44 years we’ve been trading and in order to make sure we remain relevant to our customers now and in the future, we’re striving to develop a range of service solutions designed by and for the public sector to meet new challenges.
Our focus remains on our customers, making sure that the service solutions we create answer the challenges they have to solve and help deliver maximum benefit for the taxpayer.
We’ve recently invested in growing our procurement resource capability to provide customers with category expertise, market knowledge and support to deliver value for money outcome based solutions
We recognise the significant challenges that all our local government colleagues face with increasing demands on services and with continued pressure on finances, we want to be at the heart of creating relevant and appropriate solutions which not only deliver best value but also help to meet these challenges.
Come and talk to the team on the YPO stand – we’d be keen to hear from you to understand the challenges you face and find out how we can help you.
