New Agenda

SIGOMAs new agenda has been published and will focus on five main areas of work:

  • Education and Young People – ensuring better resources to support pupils in disadvantaged areas and raise attainment
  • Health and Social Care – arguing for a fairer distribution of resources to reduce health inequalities and deliver national targets
  • Local Services – identifying more direct sources of funding so that local authorities can create the kind of environment that will attract more investment
  • Neighbourhood and Economic Renewal – ensuring that specific funding for renewal continues to recognise pockets of deprivation within more affluent areas
  • Local Taxation – identifying solutions that take account of an individuals ability to pay and a local authorities ability to generate resources
  • Housing – ensuring adequate investment is provided to deliver future housing needs for our members
  • Transport – identifying local solutions that meet the needs of individual communities
  • Future Shape of Local Government – working with members to identify and showcase existing good practice, to provide the Government with practical examples of how local government is already working to deliver an improved future.
