A Toolkit for Local Authorities
Local government services keep our communities alive and thriving. Many, including education, policing, highways and refuse, are crucial to day-to-day existence. At Ember, we don’t underestimate the size of the task. Local authorities have been finding ways to deliver more at lower cost for some time now and – as well as finding cost savings of £10 billion by 2017 – they must deal with the impact of welfare and benefit reform, keep pace with technological developments and meet citizens’ expectations for better service and more information.
