London Councils

London Councils represents London’s 32 boroughs and the City of London. We are a cross-party organisation that works on behalf of all of our member authorities regardless of political persuasion.

London Councils makes the case to government, the Mayor and others to get the best deal for Londoners and to ensure that our member authorities have the resources, freedoms and powers to do the best possible job for their residents and local businesses.

London Councils runs a number of direct services for member authorities including the Freedom Pass, Taxicard and Health Emergency Badge. It also runs an independent parking appeals service and a pan-London grants programme for voluntary organisations.


London Councils acts as a catalyst for effective sharing among boroughs – be that ideas, good practice, people, resources, or policies and new approaches.

We recognise that London is a diverse community, and value each person regardless of race, gender, disability, sexuality, religion, marital status, social background or age. We are committed to ensuring that all employees demonstrate respect and fairness to their colleagues, the public with whom we come into contact, and the people of London for whose benefit they work. We work with Stonewall and have also been awarded 'Two ticks' status to show that we are positive about disability.
