Corporate Partner Membership

ADEPT is the voice of Place Directors in upper tier local authorities across England. Our membership also includes Local Enterprise Partnerships and corporate partners drawn from key service sectors. 

  • Every hour of every day, every week of every year, ADEPT members look after our local communities, economy and environment.
  • Each year, ADEPT members across England spend over £4.5bn protecting and serving our communities
  • ADEPT members oversee over 128,656 miles of England’s road network, spending £1.5bn every year
  • 12m households in England depend on the services provided by ADEPT members. We spend £1.4bn a year on waste and recycling alone.

As strategists and policy shapers we design services for the future, making the decisions that shape both our economy and environment.

We are in a unique position, operating between national and local government and Local Enterprise Partnerships. ADEPT works closely with Whitehall and Westminster and alongside our many trusted partners across the private and public sectors.

ADEPT is a forward thinking organisation, supporting transformation and innovation. We work closely with corporate partners at all levels to develop the policies and initiatives we take to Government.

With the devolution of powers to local government as well as a changing relationship with the EU, it’s never been more important to have strong partnerships.

We invite you to work with us as members and help shape the future.

“Ringway has found that working on challenging strategic issues with ADEPT helps our organisation be a more effective Local Authority partner.  We recently worked with ADEPT on 'Managing Demand' in a controlled way, This helped us appreciate some of the hard decisions that Local Authorities face, but also how such a strategy can actually increase local awareness and participation giving greater community engagement.”   Scott Wardrop, Chief Executive, Ringway Infrastructure Services Ltd
