Partner councils

We partner with over 70 different councils across England and in Wales each year. The list indicates which councils we have partnered with in the past two years. Councils have until 31 March 2022 to sign up to the NGDP scheme. The list will be updated in real-time as and when councils register.


Councils have until 31 March 2022 to sign up for Cohort 24 of the NGDP scheme. Some councils are participating in a local campaign alongside the national campaign. For councils that say ‘local recruitment’ next to their name, please visit the council's website and search for local ngdp for more information and to find out if you meet their definition of being a local candidate.
