Norfolk ALC provides specialist information, advice and training to parish and town councils. It speaks with a strong collective voice, representing members' corporate interests through the National body to government and works in partnership with a county network of District, Borough, County Councils and other public service providers.

Norfolk ALC is managed by an Executive Committee made up of elected representatives from parish and town councils from all the districts in Norfolk, excluding Norwich City Council, currently not parished.

The County Officer, Russell Reeve, manages the Norfolk ALC office in County Hall with support staff and a complementary team of specialist officers and partners who ensure the programme is responsive to the broad range of services in demand by parish and town councils.
