Why subscribe to the Funding Advisory Service?

CIPFA’s Funding Advisory Service (FAS) is an important new advisory resource helping to guide and inform subscribers on funding issues for local government including formula grant, the retained rates scheme, council tax and the New Homes Bonus, social care integration (with health) and the Better Care Fund.

With resource funding from a variety of grant sources likely to continue to reduce, this new network will provide invaluable information and guidance for those who wish to successfully fund, plan and run their services over the coming years.

The FAS advises and supports authorities facing funding challenges who need to be better informed. Find out more below.
