This Wednesday, 4 September, the Chancellor Sajid Javid will deliver a one-year spending round where he will reveal how much money Government departments will be getting over the next financial year.

This includes how much funding councils will get so it’s a really important announcement for the county council. To ensure that our voice is heard today, we are joining in with the Local Government Association’s #CouncilsCan campaign.

This is basically to highlight all the important work that local councils do and to call on the Government to give us the certainty we need to ensure we can sustain the services we provide.

Councils up and down the country will be joining in. Throughout the day we will be focusing on the different ways that councils are making a real difference to people’s lives and you can help us spread the word.

Just watch out for the hashtag #CouncilsCan on the County Council’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages, and get behind the campaign by pressing the like button, retweeting and sharing the posts with your friends.

With certainty around funding, our work to support the most vulnerable in our communities and those with the most need can continue. And, while continuing to grow a strong economy by creating the best conditions for business and housing development to thrive we will help people be safe, healthier and ultimately better off.

I’ll report back later in the week following the spending review.
