The Warwickshire and West Midlands Association of Local Councils (WALC) represents and works alongside parish and town councils in Warwickshire, Solihull, Coventry and Birmingham. WALC provides advice to member councils on the law, procedure and issues facing Parish and Town Councils in the area.  It offers a wide range of services and assistance to local councils, including training seminars and workshops, and numerous publications.

WALC is affiliated to the National Association of Local Councils (NALC), which represents around 10,000 town, parish and community councils in England and Wales. The National Association promotes the role of local councils as representatives of local democracy and works to protect the rights of its member councils.
