Cuts Watch #51: Detailed information on local government cuts

10 Jun 2010, by in Cuts Watch

Communities and Local Government have published detailed information on how local government’s £1.166 billion of cuts will be broken down, as well as further detail on specific departmental cuts. Of particular note are:

A spreadsheet documenting the extent of cuts across local authorities is also available. It shows that some of the most deprived areas in the country are facing the largest cuts. In addition, details have been published of where ring-fences have been removed from revenue grants. These include £94 million from the Think Family Grant (which provides family and parenting support programmes); the AIDS support grant (which supports HIV/AIDS related social services) and £51 million from the Learning Disability Campus Closure Programme (which supports people with learning disabilities moving from campuses to housing in the community).
