LP-Icon-AssuranceWe support councils in their response to the public sector reform agenda and councils’ transformation programmes to create more efficient or alternative service delivery models.

We have helped a range of local authorities including Manchester and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, the Wirral, and a group of south west local authorities to redefine their public sector reform programmes to ensure effective delivery.

We help the public sector respond to the significant challenges and opportunities it faces including exploration of alternative local government models as part of devolution discussions and financial restructuring, formal collaboration and merger, acting as independent broker between different parties. We provide support for the production of business cases for councils wishing to invest in energy, housing and social investment as part of their commercial-led strategies.

Making the Case

As budgets are being set for 2019/20, and with a new Spending Review, Brexit and funding changes on the horizon, securing the resources and investment for your future plans, now, will be a key priority.

As calls are firmed up, how do you express the merit of your proposals in a manner that will maximise their chances of success?

The second “Making the Case” webinar ran on Thursday 24 January. Martin Forbes, Strategic Director, talked through the critical aspects that can help you put forward the case for your funding persuasively, specifically looking at how to:

1. set out the benefits in a robust and convincing manner
2. ensure that full costs and implications of your proposal are factored into the affordability assessment
3. build confidence around delivery and achievement of objectives
