The Independent Group Office seeks to ensure that the voices of Councillors who are Independent or of a political affiliation outside of Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat, are taken into account on all issues to do with local government, nationally and across the work of the LGA.

There are approximately 2300 Independent Group Councillors across England and Wales.

The Independent Group is led by the Independent Group Executive Committee, including Leader and LGA Vice Chairman Councillor Marianne Overton MBE, Deputy Leader Councillor Peter Reeve and Treasurer Councillor Bob Dutton. The Executive and LGA Independent Group members are supported by the Independent Group Office, which has three dedicated members of staff based at Local Government House, Westminster, London.
