Austerity Uncovered- new report from CLES and TUC

The future of local authority services is under threat from a growing funding crisis, with significant cuts already being made to statutory adult care and children’s services, according to new analysis published today (Friday) by the TUC and the Centre for Local Economic Strategies (CLES).

The report Austerity Uncovered looks at the impact of austerity, focusing on how changes in publicly-funded services affect both people and places across the country, now and in years to come.

The report, commissioned by the TUC, shows that the government’s austerity plans have considerably increased in scale, with cuts extending well into the next parliament.
