Community cohesion

How will the well-being objective be financed?

When we ask people 'What things in life matter to you?', they tell us that loved ones, family, friends, neighbours and community matter to them.

In Children’s Services our range of family support services contribute to this objective and it is difficult to break down the costs of this from some of our other objectives on helping children get the best start in life and improving early life experiences.

In total nearly £24m is spent across the Children’s Services Division. Services to support carers and home support services help people to continue to live at home, with their families and in their communities – Also see Objective 9. We are also working to ensure broader community cohesion with a range of initiatives.
