Children’s services and adult social care face cuts as £40m more savings needed

12 August 2019 – EDP24

Council bosses are facing two months of work to identify how £40m of cuts can be made – which will see its savings over the past decade soar past the £400m mark.

A £71m budget gap forecast for the next two years means that Norfolk County Council will need to find £40m in the coming year, a figure agreed by its cabinet earlier this year.

Of this figure, £20m is set to come from the service sectors including £9m from adult social care, £4.5m from children’s services and £5m from community and environmental services.
