Sheffielders are being asked to give their views on council services and where money should be allocated as part of Sheffield City Council’s budget conversation.

The council faces increasing demand for services, including adults’ and children’s social care, on top of cuts from central Government following seven years of austerity. Its plans include adding a three per cent social care precept to next year’s council tax bills, as 95 per cent of councils did this year. This will equate to an extra 52p per week for most households – however, even with this additional funding, this will not cover all of the extra demand for social care.

From Monday 11 December, people are asked to complete a survey online. A printed version of the budget survey is also available on request by emailing or phoning 0114 293 0239. Public events will also be held across the city in the New Year where people can find out more and have their say.

Councillor Olivia Blake, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance at Sheffield City Council, said: “Next year we’re expecting to have to make further savings of more than £30 million. At the same time, demand for our services is increasing.

“We want to make sure people have the chance to tell us their priorities and where they think the opportunities are to invest or save more.

“We’ve been put in financial stranglehold by the Government cuts and need to continue to provide essential services, including to the most vulnerable in our city.

“Please get involved and have your say.”

People can take the survey online at  Information about the public events will be publicised in January.

Sheffield City Council’s final budget for 2018/19 will be agreed in March 2018, including decisions about council tax levels.

About Sheffield City Council’s budget:
