Our Staff

A message from the team

To ensure that the health of our team and the wider community is upheld through these unprecedented times, from Monday 30 March all LGPro staff will be working from home. We are available to take your calls and provide you with support, continue with our offerings in a different way and bring you some great new initiatives. 

Please see below our direct contact details or you can email info@lgpro.com for general queries. Our phones have been diverted so you can call a team member on their direct line.

We recognise and appreciate the critical role you play in your organisation and your communities. We hope that you and your loved ones are keeping safe and we look forward to being able to work with you online and in new ways.
