Use financial forecasting to plan for any scenario

Financial foresight provides you with a multifaceted model to develop a robust medium and long term baseline financial forecast, with relevant comparative benchmarks for every council in England.

This will help you to understand wider performance and socioeconomic context for financial decisions, as well as prescribing remedies for intervention through testing and appraising a range of financial strategies and scenarios.

Our financial strategy accelerator workshop supports you in the development of an action plan and an implementation pathway. You will have exclusive access to our other public services tools to help accelerate your financial planning process.

“Working with Grant Thornton to use the Financial Foresight tool, we were able to get straight into the heart of rich conversations about the different financial trajectories for both Councils, and to agree a set of interventions to strengthen their position over the medium term. The whole process has helped us to inject pace and rigour into our financial improvement programmes.”
