Local Authorities

We work in close collaboration with local authorities on the Pod. Learn more about them here.

Our local authority subscription service options for the academic year 2021-22 are now available. 

Local authorities can request free Pod membership to access Pod education and campaign resources, or full Pod membership for Pod campaign localisation, support services and impact reporting.

Learn more about Pod membership by downloading the Pod Membership BrochurePod Membership Presentation and Pod Membership FAQs.

If you are a local authority interested in becoming a member of the Pod, please REGISTER and you will be contacted by a member of the team.

Switch Off Fortnight 2021

This year we’ve launched a very special Switch Off Fortnight (8-21 Nov) as it’s brought to you in partnership with the Energy Saving Trust Foundation.

To help you promote energy efficiency amongst your local schools and communities, we’ve created a series of helpful assets, to make it easy for you to engage your schools, which you can share as appropriate:

Local Authority SOF Brief / Press Release for local promotion

- Local Authority SOF School Bulletin Template, suitable for release to headteachers through your authority’s official channels

- Web and email banners 1, 23 (remember to hyperlink to the campaign sign up page https://www.jointhepod.org/campaigns/sof21)
