Who We Are

Frontline Consulting was established in 2007 by Ann Reeder. Our focus is on the role of elected members and good governance. We work with all types of council and specialise in developing relationships between councillors and across tiers and across the publicly funded sector in England. We work with police (fire) and crime panels in England and Wales.


We include experienced leaders, chairs, executive and non-executive councillors and officers who understand the politics of local government and the wider public sector. Our expanding work with town and parish councillors is led by an experienced town and parish clerk. Our Associates have worked in local authorities, the civil service, the NHS, business and the third sector.


We also have worked with the Centre for Governance and Scrutiny, East Midlands Councils, Grant Thornton UK LLP, Hoey Ainscough Associates, Local Government Association, Local Government Information Unit and South West Councils and organisations who support the Non-Executive Academy.
