Your views on how we should spend our budget have never been so important.
COVID-19 has placed even greater pressure on our resources. Following several years of reduced financial support from central government, we now receive just 16p for every £1 we received five years ago. Essential services are expected to cost £2bn next year.
As a result, we need to spend our money wisely. We need to know what’s important to you in our recovery from COVID-19. Please take part in our budget consultation 2020.
