LGiU Fortnightly is our new podcast, bringing you the latest news from the world of local government. We update you on the key events from the past fortnight, as well as news from us and our members, so you’re always in the loop. We’re always looking for more ways to bring you the information you need in a way that works around your busy schedule – let us know what you think by tweeting us @LGiU.

This week, we ask Piali Das Gupta, SOLACE Head of Policy, how councils are preparing for the Homelessness Reduction Act, as well as our regular roundup of local government news and recent LGiU briefings. Hosted by Jennifer Glover and Andrew Walker (with a cameo appearance from Ingrid Koehler!).
