However, as the responsibilities, structure and makeup of local authorities and the department have changed a great deal since 2009, central funding (department spend) to local government and wider spending power measures therefore are not directly comparable over this period.</p><p>Over the five-year period from 2015-2016 to 2019-2020, councils have access, through the local government settlement, to over £200 billion to deliver local services, including children’s services. This core spending power is not ring fenced and it is for local authorities to determine spend across different areas according to local priorities.</p><p>In addition to this, the Autumn Budget announced a further £410 million in 2019 to 2020 for local authorities to invest in adult and children’s social care services. It also announced £84 million of extra funding, over the next 5 years, to support local authorities to invest in initiatives that improve social work practice and decision making so that children can stay at home and with their family where it is in their best interest to do so.</p><p> </p><p>[1] Totals include resource and capital departmental expenditure limits.</p><p> </p><p>[2] Sources:</p><p> </p><ul><li><a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/203826/Spending_review_2010.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/203826/Spending_review_2010.pdf</a>.</li></ul><p> </p><p> </p><ul><li><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/spending-review-and-autumn-statement-2015-documents/spending-review-and-autumn-statement-2015" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/spending-review-and-autumn-statement-2015-documents/spending-review-and-autumn-statement-2015</a>.</li></ul><p> </p><p> </p>
