Worcestershire County Association of Local Councils (CALC) is a not for profit, voluntary member-based organisation open to all parish and town councils across Worcestershire.
We pride ourselves on supporting and informing Local Councils and providing professional advice and training to Worcestershire Parish and Town councils – the first tier of local government.
CALC is a democratic body, through Members taking part in 4 local area meetings they elect from the members representatives to form the CALC Executive Board. The Association also has an important role in liaising with local, regional and national bodies and together with 41 other CALCs in England; Worcestershire CALC is affiliated to the National Association of Local Councils (NALC).
We have built up great partnership links with the Principal Councils within Worcestershire. NALC and Worcestershire CALC also have a great relationship and the Executive Board elects a member to NALC’s National Assembly. Currently Cllr. Sue Baxter from Worcestershire is Chairman of NALC. Membership of Worcestershire CALC also gives membership to NALC.
All Local Councils in Worcestershire are welcome to join, and member councils have a raft of benefits.
We are lucky enough to rent a small office on a lovely business park which nestles at the foot of the gorgeous Malvern Hills where we share space with Stirling House Financial Services.
The office can be found just a short distance from the Three Counties Showground.
If you take the Blackmore Park Road and travel in a southerly direction away from the showground, Willow End Park is approximately 1/4 mile from the crossroads on the left hand side.
Take the first left off the access road and we are in the left hand side of the building on the ground floor.
It is always best to ring the office first to check that a visit is convenient and that we are present in the building, and if so you will always find a warm welcome and the offer of a cuppa!
