Suffolk Association of Local Councils (SALC) is a not for profit membership organisation, representing, training and advising parish and town councils of Suffolk. It offers members a resource of vital, operational information and facilitate communication at all levels of the parish network – district, county, regional and national.
Both Staff and Members regularly attend training provided by SALC, which keeps Council up-to-date and strengthens our skills, services and knowledge base.
SALC is supported by NALC’s professional team (including their specialist lawyers and policy officers who lobby Government on our behalf) and by the experienced teams based in other counties.
SALC provides advice and information to Council on a range of subjects including: Legal advice service; Employment advice service; Advice on council administration; Policy consultation and advice; National Circulars and Information E-Bulletins and Quarterly magazine ‘The Local Councillor’.
Council appoints two Members to represent Felixstowe at the SALC Area Meetings, who bring regular reports back to Council.
