NALC Update 9/4/2020: Coronavirus – Information for Parish and Town Councils

NALC has updated its dedicated webpage on the coronavirus. This includes updated Annual Governance and Accountability Return flowcharts and step-by-step guides, the launch of Keep Britain Tidy’s new campaign, digital mapping and free training resources for volunteers and local groups. See the updates below:

Joint Practitioners Action Group (JPAG)

JPAG has produced updated flow charts and step-by-step guides related to the changes to audit time frames. These can be found on our JPAG webpage.

Keep Britain Tidy

Keep Britain Tidy have launched their #LoveWhereYouLive campaign, as in the current climate a lot of activities that communities do are not possible, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t still love where we live.

Parish Online

NALC partners, Parish Online, has published information on how digital mapping can help local councils support their communities during this crisis.

Communities Prepared

Communities Prepared has created free training resources for volunteers and local groups wishing to support their communities during the pandemic — they also provide free training and resources around wider emergency preparedness too.


This information forms part of a NALC’s dedicated webpage on the coronavirus. It should not be used as a substitute for government advice, however, there are some practicalities specific to local (parish and town) councils where we hope this information will help you plan ahead and manage your risks. If you would like further advice and support on any of these topics for your local council then please contact your local county association. This is a fast-moving situation and we will be updating the webpage regularly.
