The voice of Scottish Local Authority FM services

Our mission is to work on behalf of our members and partners to ensure that our services always highlight best value and information on practices, products and services.

Assisting Scottish Local Authorities

ASSIST FM is a non-profit association. We rely on funding from our members, partner suppliers and the exhibitors at our Annual Conference to fund our activities. Our role is to promote the facilities management services of all member local authorities in Scotland.

Assisting Scottish Local Authorities

ASSIST FM brings together the best companies and products from every industry and gives them a platform to showcase their services to local authorities. Whether you are in the food service industry, or provide products and services in cleaning, maintenance, or other areas of the facilities management services, we can provide the path for bringing those products and services to the attention of Scottish local authorities. Have a look at some of our current proud partners:

Award Winners

Local Authorities all around Scotland are running programmes every day that are revolutionising the way their services are viewed, how they perform, and most importantly are making a difference in the everyday lives of the people involved. We’re shining a light on these services to not only celebrate their achievements, but to inspire other authorities and companies to join in or create their own initiatives!


We will constantly update our site with news and information from our members and partner organisations.
