Who is presenting?
Hoey Ainscough Associates Ltd was set up in 2012 by its co-directors Paul Hoey and Natalie Ainscough to support local authorities following the abolition of Standards for England. They provide authoritative advice and guidance to individual authorities on standards procedures and individual cases and share good practice on standards issues through a subscription website. They specialise in training for members and officers on standards and have helped representatives from over 250 authorities since the business was set up. They also work with national representative bodies on standards-related policy issues, including the Committee on Standards in Public Life, and organise and speak at national conferences.
