The purpose of the report is to inform the Cabinet Member of the projected revenue expenditure within the portfolio cash limit and capital programme for the current financial year 2019/20. This report sets out the budget position and contributing factors to the projected year-end overspend within the portfolio, as at the end of June 2019.


RECOMMENDED that the Cabinet Member:

1.    Notes the Children and Families Portfolio forecast budget position as at the end of June 2019, of £1.5m in excess of the current approved cash limit provision.


2.    Notes the continuing implementation of the "Stronger Futures" strategic programme designed to reduce the number of looked after children in the city, the key driver of the overspend in this portfolio.


3.    Notes the position in respect of the approved capital schemes for the portfolio.
