Financial and economic impact of local government – our report for the LGA

  • What is the daily cost of local authority social care, and how does that compare to one NHS hospital bed-day?
  • What is the return on investment of each £1 spent on interventions to reduce drug and alcohol dependency?
  • How much is spent on children’s mental health and what proportion of this is spent by local government?

As local government heads into one of the most difficult financial planning cycles in living memory our newly published study for the Local Government Association (LGA) distils a mountain of published evidence and data on the financial costs and benefits across the main areas of local government spending. Our report is intended to inform local and national decision-making processes as an accessible guide to existing evidence of the wider financial and economic impact of council expenditure.

Although completed at the end of last year, publication of our report by the LGA  was unfortunately delayed by several months.
