We have a strong track record in supporting councils across the country to improve their governance and scrutiny. We support councils to create and enhance organisational cultures which welcome scrutiny and challenge.

Those organisations that have a healthy culture and that places scrutiny and challenge at its heart, will understand the benefits that can be drawn from a having Positive Scrutiny Culture - and we can help you to develop this in your organisation.

We also support those councillors who are part of Overview and Scrutiny Committees, Children Services Committees or Corporate Parenting Boards; drawing on our wide governance and children's services portfolio and experience.


We are a leading governance improvement organisation, and have worked with councils and the Local Government Association to help councillors to understand the added value that scrutiny can bring to the strategic leadership of a council. Our Founder and Director Su Turner, has authored many publications on the role of scrutiny from her National work for the Department of Health and Department for Education.
