Event Details

A Local government accounting workshop for non-accountants!

Local authorities publish large amounts of financial information but who understands it?

This workshop is for anyone with an interest in local government financial accountability and would like to be able to decipher the information they publish. The aim is to help non-specialists understand the intricacies of local authority accounting. The workshop will be useful for journalists, local bloggers, pressure groups, local citizens and anyone else interested in what their local council spends and how they report it.

At the end of the workshop you should be able to make sense of the financial reports of local authorities and be in a position to start questioning the content of their reports.

Anyone attending is encouraged to bring along the accounts and reports for a local authority they have an interest in as there will be a chance to analyse and discuss these.

The fee covers lunch, coffee, tea and all materials.

Anyone wanting to make a weekend of it could stay at St Hugh's.
