Council Hive

Council Hive is a package of tools and support to make it easy for local councils to communicate and engage effectively and compliantly with their communities.

Council Hive provides councils with communications and compliance training, masterclasses, resources, templates and expert professional advice - whenever you need it.

Council Hive: Council Communications and Compliance, Made Easy.

Parish and town councils have a lot to contend with. Clerks and officers are stretched for time and often work with limited resources.

When it comes to engaging and communicating with your community, it can be hard to know where to start, how to prioritise and where to focus efforts.


And when it comes to GDPR and FOI compliance, it can be tough to get things right. That's why local government experts Breakthrough Communications created Council Hive, a unique service designed exclusively for parish and towns councils.

Council Hive saves councils time and money, by making it easy to communicate and engage with your community, and to do so in a compliant way.
