Budget and Finances
Where does the money come from to pay the budget?
The Government calculates the Council's grant according to a
number of criteria and its ability to raise money from the Council
Tax. Worcestershire's general grant for 2011/12 is just over £109
million, or £195 per person.
Where our funding comes from
We also receive other grants from the government for specific
purposes such as the Dedicated Schools Grant that provides funding
for schools and can only be used for this purpose. Therefore, this
funding does not form part of the BOLD programme.
The level of other specific grants the Council receives has been
significantly reduced as a result of spending cuts.
Just over 66% of our funding comes from Central Government with
the rest raised through the Council Tax. The amount we get from the
government is being cut considerably and means we will need to save
a total of between £60 and £70 million over the next four
