The platinum level Local Innovation Awards Scheme (LIA Scheme) has been jointly established by Communities and Local Government (CLG), and the Local Government Association (LGA). With a streamlined process, the scheme is 'easy to enter, a challenge to win’. Find out more about why central and local government both sponsor this exciting scheme (PDF, 1 page, 31KB).
