This briefing on Whole Area and Community Budgets:
– describes the genesis of the community budget pilots,
– reviews the progress to date
– considers a number of major themes that are emerging from this work that will have huge significance for the future of local government as we approach the next spending review (expected 2015), almost regardless of the outcome of the specific pilots.
This briefing will be of interest to senior politicians, officials and our partners across the local government ‘family’, as well as specifically for policy officers involved in troubled families, partnership and neighbourhood working/collaborations. It is intended to revisit this issue with an additional briefing when the four whole area pilot business cases are released (expected October 31st), and in the aftermath of any Government response in the Autumn Statement (expected December 6th).
