Councils have already had government funding cut by 40 per cent over the past five years. Having already made £20 billion worth of savings since 2010, the worst cuts in local government are still to come.
If spending reductions follow a similar pattern over the next five years, councils will be facing a £12.4bn funding gap by the end of the decade.
Many of the things we take for granted like street cleaning, children’s centres, libraries, leisure centres are all at risk! And more dedicated staff could lose their jobs. Local government needs urgent funding from central government to continue to provide the vital local services you deserve.
