Partners and supporters

There is broad and strong support for the Institute for Local Governance demonstrated by the current partnership:


  • Association of North East Councils (ANEC)
  • Twelve North East Local Authorities
  • Durham University
  • Newcastle University
  • Northumbria University
  • Sunderland University
  • Teesside University
  • Fire and Rescue Services
  • Durham, Cleveland and Northumbria Police


We are keen to develop the ILG brand, gain further financial buy in and ensure the Institute is inclusive, strategic and sustainable in the longer term and we are being proactive in building links with other North East and national organisations and sectors including business and the voluntary sectors. We are developing our links to key national local government related think tanks and policy centres, research councils and charitable trusts.

We would like to hear from you if you would like to discuss becoming involved with the ILG.
