City of London

‚ÄčA uniquely diverse organisation

The City Corporation has a special role and wide remit that goes beyond that of an ordinary local authority. We look after the City of London on behalf of all who live, work and visit here and have
three primary functions.

We support and promote the City as the world leader in international finance and business services.
We provide modern, efficient and high quality local services and policing within the Square Mile for residents, workers and visitors.
We provide valued services to London and the nation as a whole, including our role as one of the most significant arts sponsors in the UK and our support for economic regeneration in the surrounding boroughs.

"Five debates a day sounds a bit daunting beforehand, but I really loved it. The speakers are so knowledgeable and passionate about their chosen topic, and the amount of time dedicated to questions from the audience was great as it really brought in alternative views."
