Community Budgets are a way for local public service providers to work together to meet local needs. Community Budgets allow providers of public services to share budgets, improving outcomes for local people and reducing duplication and waste.
Pilots for neighbourhood Community Budgets were announced on 2 December 2011, aimed at giving communities more power and control over local services and budgets.
Twenty four areas were shortlisted out of 45 areas that put their names forward to work with Whitehall to develop neighbourhood-level Community Budgets. The applications demonstrated the drive across communities and public services to explore new ways to give local people more control over their services.
This report provides progress on the pilots that new areas can learn from.
