Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Lewis Cone, a leading analyst in the B2B sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
As local authorities restrict their spending, a large number of services could be subject to further cuts - including those listed as ‘priority services’, such as children’s services and social care. This could occur even though the number of children in care has reached a record high.
