Children’s Services Funding & Welfare

The government’s ongoing reform of the welfare system coupled with financial pressures in other public agencies - especially the police, health and education - are having a clear impact on children’s social care services in the form of rising demand. This is affecting the ability of local authorities to intervene earlier and prevent the need for more costly interventions down the line.

Children’s services and welfare falls within the remit of the Resources and Sustainability Policy Committee.
