Local councils have a huge funding gap – estimated at £10 billion in England, £1 billion in Scotland and £279 million in Wales.
UNISON’s Save Our Services campaign has been fighting to get councils the emergency funding they need, and for more funding for the future. To protect your jobs and to ensure communities are resilient to the impact of COVID-19.
We need to campaign hard throughout January and February to ensure local councils are not forgotten in the government’s budget on 3 March.
The Chancellor has said the budget will set out the government’s plan to “support the economic recovery, tackle coronavirus and protect jobs.” Let’s make sure local services are at the heart of it!
