Value for Money Profiles
The Local Government Value for Money (VfM) profiles use official statistics published by government departments to present costs, performance, and activity of local councils and fire authorities. The profiles are presented in a way that aims to help better understand the actual costs of delivering local public services and relative performance over time to provide a value for money overview that compares one area against others. The profiles are theme based and give an overview of spend and performance for the chosen authority (e.g. comparisons can be tailored to show your chosen area with the England average or similar authorities).
