Local government finance

The Fair Funding team is responsible for developing London Councils’ policy on local government finance, performance and procurement. We work with and on behalf of London’s local authorities, producing research, technical papers and analysis which is used to influence government thinking on all aspects of local government finance. We frequently respond to government consultations and attend government working groups on behalf of our members.
