Our priority is to empower local authorities to lead improvement wherever possible. We are increasing improvement funding to over £70 million over the next three years to support improvement activity across the sector.

We are ensuring support is targeted where it is needed most to tackle particular issues which local authorities may face. This is in addition to expanded universal support which provides resources, materials and training opportunities available all local authorities.
