“Southampton City Council has experienced a significant reduction in funding per head of population since 2011.

We want Southampton to be a modern and attractive city where children and young people get a good start in life, people can live safe, healthy and independent lives and people are proud to live and work. The council’s transformation journey started in 2015 with a strong focus on outcomes, customer experiences, commercialisation and continuous improvement and performance to implement the Council Strategy 2016 -2020.

We are increasingly recognised for many aspects of our work including working with health on integration, having a proactive role in sub regional activity on devolution and building our national reputation on skills.”

We’re delighted to have four city council cabinet members presenting a discussion on the subject of Innovation Under Fire: A Study of Innovation in Local Government Policy, with an emphasis on the impact on young voters, but open to members and supporters of all ages.

• Cllr Mark Chaloner - Cabinet Member for Finance
• Cllr Christopher Hammond - Cabinet Member for Sustainable Living
• Cllr Satvir Kaur - Cabinet Member for Communities, Culture and Leisure
• Cllr Dr Darren Paffey - Cabinet Member for Education and Skills

Each will talk about what has been done to keep essential services running and innovations against a background of some of the most difficult spending rounds in the history of local government, followed by a discussion.

Please note this is an additional event to 13th March, and continues a broad theme of local government innovation amidst financial pressures in Southampton.

Non-members are welcome to attend and contribute to the discussion, as always. A one-off donation of £2 is suggested to help cover the costs of refreshments and room hire.
