Local Council Award Scheme

The Local Council Award Scheme (LCAS) has been designed to celebrate the successes of the best local councils and provide a framework to support all local council in improving and developing to meet their full potential.  The scheme allows councils to show that they meet the standards set by the sector, assess them by their peers, and put in place the conditions for continued improvement. 

The scheme has been designed to provide the tools and encouragement to those councils at the beginning of their improvement journeys and promote and recognise councils at the cutting edge of the sector. Only through the sector working together to share best practices, drive up standards and support those committed to improving their offer to their communities will individual councils and the sector as a whole reach their full potential. 

LCAS undergoes a review every year. Local must meet the guidance criteria that is in place on the date they submit their completed application form to their local accredited panel.
