Norfolk ALC and Scribe have launched a new partnership to bring together the 2 local Norfolk organisations, who both serve the Parish and Town Councils in the County, which will enable Norfolk ALC members to enjoy exclusive benefits with the Scribe online software solutions.
The 2 organisations have a natural synergy and will work together on initiatives to ensure that Norfolk Town and Parishes obtain the best working practices, informative training programmes and cutting-edge online systems.
Norfolk ALC is a Co-Operative not for profit membership association of over 350 parish and town councils. It works closely with the National Association of Local Councils. Norfolk ALC provides specialist information, advice and training to parish and town councils. It speaks with a strong collective voice, representing members' corporate interests through the National body to government and works in partnership with Norfolk County Council and other public service providers.
Scribe is the fastest-growing software and training company operating in the local government sector in the UK. Scribe’s product portfolio currently includes accounts, venue bookings, cemetery and allotments management. Scribe currently has over 750 parishes, town and community councils on their platform and are growing 100% year on year.
In announcing the partnership Jeremy Burton County Officer from Norfolk ALC said: we are delighted to form this partnership with Scribe. Many of our members already use Scribe and we recognised that this an ideal match with our Norfolk neighbours. By agreeing on this partnership, we are pleased that our members can now have enhanced benefits and we look forward to bringing more innovative products and services to Norfolk Parish & Town Councils.
John Fagan, CEO of Scribe said: from what started as a casual conversation with Norfolk ALC it quickly became apparent that Norfolk ALC is a forward-thinking and fast-moving organisation. We share the same values and mission, which is to enable community leaders to spend more time impacting and engaging with their community and less time administering it. This is our very first partnership with an Associate of Local Councils, and now we plan to take this idea nationally. We thank Norfolk ALC for collaborating with us to make this happen so quickly.
