To lead, give value and help

HAPTC is a membership organisation financed by subscriptions from parish, community and town councils and parish meetings. We offer support, advice and training to our members to enable them to serve their communities to the best of their abilities. Our specialist field is in parish council law and procedure, but we can advise or signpost on a wide range of subjects including employment, financial controls, risk management, allotments, burial grounds, code of conduct, village greens and playgrounds.

We represent parish councils to district/borough, county, regional and national bodies and work to enhance communication with everyone within the Parish Council network.

As a membership association HAPTC is unable to deal with queries from members of the public, but is happy to make general information available through this website.

Membership is open to any parish, community or town council or parish meeting which pays an annual subscription to the Association.

County Officer: Carina Helmn
Council Development Officer: Sue Campbell
