After a decade of reductions in funding from central government and rising demand for services, councils have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Responding to the significant challenges ahead will require a collective effort to rebuild the financial foundations of councils and deliver better outcomes for communities.

This webinar provides the opportunity to raise questions with senior politicians and experts from the sector. We will explore the outcome of the 2021 Spending Review, the 2022/23 provisional local government finance settlement, as well as consider what next for local government finance reform.
