What is Solace?

Solace is the representative body for Chief Executives and senior managers working in the public sector in the UK. We are committed to promoting public sector excellence. We provide our members with opportunities for professional development and seek to influence debate around the future of public services to ensure that policy and legislation are informed by the experience and expertise of our members. Whilst the vast majority of our members work in local government, some occupy senior positions in health and social care organisations, police and fire authorities and central government departments.



Solace membership is open to current and former Chief Executives and senior managers at all UK local authorities. Aspiring managers including members of recognised graduate or management development schemes and those working in related public sector organisations may also be eligible for membership.
