The Improvement Service has now completed analysis on behalf of the Scottish Government on potential models to distribute the devolved debt levy funding.
Following the completion of initial research, the IS identified seven potential funding models which were narrowed down to four that are worth exploring further after wide-ranging engagement. These four models are:
- Direct grants to local authorities
- Grants programme managed by an independent organisation (ongoing)
- Funding to support ‘Change and Innovation’
- Advice Services Partnership
The potential merits of these four models have now been analysed and a series of final engagement events have been planned. These will be offered on four occasions in different locations and formats, including virtually and in-person, to maximise opportunities for attendance.
At the events key findings and recommendations will be presented, and participants will have the opportunity to comment. The results of these engagement sessions will be included in the final evaluation report.
Whist the focus will be on the four potential models that have been analysed, an opportunity will be provided to comment on all the models that were originally identified.
