Following the success of last year’s event ‘Risk, Resilience, Reform – creating a sustainable future’ CIPFA conference 2015 is set to be a sell out event.

Welcoming over 1,000 public finance and accountancy professionals from across all public services to the Novotel London West Hotel on 7-9 July, the conference will provide delegates with in-depth insight and analysis, exploring the challenges and suggesting solutions to the most pressing issues facing us all in the post recession world. As well as stimulating thought led debate we will look at the practical tools and techniques needed to create sustainable public services in 2015 and beyond. 

According to the Office For Budget Responsibility, central spending on public services is projected to fall from 21% of GDP in 2009-10 to just 12.6% in 2019-20.

Alongside these cuts, public services have been facing an increasing demand for statutory services. Across health, emergency services, in education, central and local government there are rising concerns about the sustainability of public services in the light of rising demand for statutory provision, increasingly stretched resources, and uncertainty about future funding following the 2015 general election.

While the sovereign debt crisis has led to significant challenges for economic performance and business development, undermining global economic growth, the future government’s challenge is now to deliver public services effectively, efficiently and economically in a time of continuing fiscal constraint. Service providers need to be innovative in the ways in which they deliver interventions, there needs to be greater focus on prevention and early intervention and services need especially to consider how through integration and better alignment they can deliver more effective outcomes for the populations they serve and establish a lasting legacy for future generations.

Hear from leading professionals, thought leaders and speakers from across the whole public sector, who will share their knowledge in a series of plenary sessions and practical insight in a programme of workshops. 

Join us in aligning public services and forging a sustainable legacy. BOOK NOW
