Whether through the agency of regulators or directly through councils and their partners (Fire, Police, Local Enterprise Partnerships) the governance of governmental organisations is key to creating vibrant local communities.

‘Place’ is an emerging concept and GGI is at the forefront of developing thinking around the contribution of good governance to the local determination of sustainable public services.

We are taking forward governance thinking in the new world of systems, collaboration and cooperation with practical models and examples of what works in neighbourhoods and localities.

We understand too the world of regulation, and the special governance issues that play out in the governance of the organisations that licence, accredit and recognise services that serve citizens.

Government locally is run by democratically elected councillors who form a full council, the controlling mind of local government organisations. GGI has worked with government at all levels, from large national agencies to local institutions such as fire and rescue services.

We support them as they set the strategic direction and take decisions which are implemented by staff who deliver services on a daily basis.

I'm delighted that we chose GGI to carry out a review of our corporate governance.  Professional, responsive and flexible at all times, it was their expertise in this area that really stood out, bringing fresh insights and powerful recommendations.  Implementation of the review promises to take us a big step closer to the 'well-led' organisation we aspire to be.
