Serving the people of Norfolk

Norfolk Association of Local Councils

Formed by Parish Councils, Run for Parish Councils, Delivering to Parish Councils

Norfolk Association of Local Councils (Norfolk ALC) is a not for profit membership association of parish and town councils. It works closely with the National Association of Local Councils (NALC). Please contact us if you wish to know more about the benefits of membership of Norfolk ALC.

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.

Please remember that any Norfolk ALC Member Council can access the National Association of Local Councils' members site. This contains legal information and updates for first-tier councils, and the latest policy and parliamentary news and briefings.

Members' access is via a username and password. Please contact us if you don't already have these details.


Please take a look at our new range of webinars. As well as attending live sessions, you will be able to register to watch recordings if not able to make it to the live events. We may provide you with a copy of the presentation and supporting documentation and, if the topic has a dedicated guidance page on our website, responses to questions raised will be added under the Q&A section on that page.
This new approach is a collaboration with our neighbouring county associations which will aim to ensure that training is relevant to current and emerging needs of our sector, delivered by subject specialists and practitioners and cost effective so that even the smallest parish council can book their Councillors and Staff



The Member Support System on the Norfolk ALC website is designed to allow Councils to place a query with us 24/7 by creating a "ticket" in the member's only section.

Users with the correct login credentials can access our online Member Support ticket system where all their queries can be dealt with confidentially.



This provides a month by month view of the training and events which Norfolk ALC has either arranged. Please use the online booking form if you wish to attend any activity.
