Budget 2023-24

We have started the budget consultation for 2023/24 and we are asking for local people to give us their views. We estimate that we will need to find at least £10m in budget savings for 2023-24, with an estimated financial gap of £55m over the next five years. Our consultation will be seeking views from residents, staff, businesses and partner organisations on the proposals until 9 February 2023.

There's no such thing as a typical foster carer. Our carers come from all walks of life, just like the children who need to be cared for. We're looking for people who are patient, flexible, understanding, determined and keen to learn. Your individual qualities are what matter to us and what you can offer to a child or young person.
