NALC calls for Community Wealth Fund distribution through local councils

The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) is calling on the government to allocate its Community Wealth Fund resources through local (parish and town) councils in regions below 20,000 population.

In its response to the government's Community Wealth Fund in England technical consultation launched last month, NALC stated:

"Local councils in these smaller communities are well-equipped to understand and address the unique needs of their areas. Given their status as statutory bodies, NALC deems them the most competent entities to administer and distribute funds allocated by the National Lottery Fund. Additionally, they would work closely with relevant partners in the voluntary and community sectors."

NALC recommends the establishment of new local councils in all un-parished areas throughout England, with populations falling below the 20,000 mark.
