Communications support

In a context of further future regional devolution, advances in technology, changes in media consumption patterns and communications preferences, the LGA commissioned Newgate Research to undertake a focused piece of qualitative research to understand lessons learned in communicating devolution.

This research involved a scoping review of relevant literature, interviews with the Head of Communication (or equivalent) in eight combined authorities as well as interviews with four strategic stakeholders with expertise in local government communications. Through this work we have identified the opportunities for communicators working within or for devolved areas, as well as some key principles to consider.
