Children in need


Analysis by CYP Now shows that local government cuts will disproportionately affect authorities with higher numbers of children in need. The funding settlement for councils in England for 2011/12 and 2012/13 will mean average cuts of 4.4% to the “spending power” of authorities.

However, of the 27 authorities facing cuts in the coming year of 8% or more, eight — Hackney, Hull, Islington, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham, Southwark and Tower Hamlets — are ranked in the bottom 10 of the children in need rank of average scores, according to the Local Index of Child Well-Being 2009. Of the 27 authorities facing cuts of 2% or less, six — Buckinghamshire, Leicestershire, Richmond, Surrey, Windsor and Maidenhead, and Wokingham — are ranked in the top 10 of the children in need rank of average scores.
