Changing the way we provide services

Like every other council in the country our money has to stretch even further than it has in the past.

And as well as having less to spend, the number of older people, people with dementia and children at risk of harm is rising, putting more pressure on our budget.

It’s more important than ever that we put value for money at the heart of everything we do. But it’s also important to change as the world changes, to modernise and take advantage of exciting new technology and better ways of doing things.

That’s why we’re taking a new approach to the way we deliver services. Read more about our enterprising council approach.
