Floating support stakeholder consultation 2016

New Search

Purpose Lancashire County Council continues to face an unprecedented financial challenge. Over the next five years to 2020/21 the council needs to make savings of 262m on top of those agreed within previous budget processes. This extremely difficult financial picture is the result of continued cuts in funding by Government, rising costs and rising demand for key services.

Based on current spending and forecast demand for services, the council will not have sufficient financial resources to meet its statutory obligations by April 2018, even if we no longer continue to deliver any of the non-statutory services. The council will need to rely heavily on reserves in order to set a balanced budget for 2016/17 and 2017/18.

Lancashire County Council currently provides all of the funding which is used to deliver the county wide generic floating support service delivered by Calico. As a result of the financial difficulties, the county council is proposing to stop this funding support for generic floating support at the end of March 2017.

We would like to hear your views about these budget proposals and any concerns or ideas you may have.
