Sheffield’s budget for 2021/22 was agreed at Sheffield City Council’s Full Council meeting today, with a focus on continuing the covid-19 response, providing care for our most vulnerable, improving youth services and community safety, city wide economic recovery and building a strong and sustainable future for all.

Budget plans were shared last month, showing a balanced position for the year ahead, but with uncertainty around Government funding in the medium term.

  • Care Sector, £4.2million
  • Youth Services, £2million
  • Council Tax support, £0.5million
