(Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee) Funding and provision of local authorities’ children’s services inquiry

21 November 2018

The Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee has launched a new inquiry into funding and provision of local authorities’ children’s services.

The inquiry will investigate what impact public spending has had on the provision of care services, and the approaches local authorities have taken in addressing funding constraints.

It will consider how financial support for children’s services can be made more sustainable in the short and long term, and examine the potential for innovative approaches to the design and delivery of services.

The Committee is inviting submissions on:

  • Is the funding for local authorities’ children’s services sufficient to enable local authorities to fulfil their statutory duties?
  • What are the financial challenges for local authorities’ in providing non-statutory services?
  • How can funding for children’s services be made more sustainable in the short and long term?
  • How can innovative approaches to the design and delivery of children’s services support financial sustainability?
