Paul Deegan, Lead Partner, Local Public Services

Local government is at the forefront of responding to some of the most complex challenges in our society. PwC is committed to doing all we can to support the sector to address these challenges and deliver improved outcomes for people and places.
We work with local authorities of all types across the country, helping them to understand local needs, identify priorities, plan their activity to meet these requirements and transform ways of working to improve efficiency and effectiveness.
PwC have worked particularly closely with a number of CCN member councils and with the CCN itself, forging an effective partnership which we hope has been of benefit to all involved. We focus on helping our clients to renew strategy, ambition and transformation agendas so that they can continue to shape the places they represent and support the most vulnerable members of our society. We also work collaboratively with our clients to provide practical support in key service areas ensure changes are implemented successfully and are sustainable.
Over the coming year we will be working with the CCN and its member councils to explore the future workforce the sector requires, challenges arising from sustained shortages and to identify solutions to some of these problems.
This will be alongside the support we are already providing to many of our partners on responding to the pressure of the current economic landscape and to support them to continue to innovate including the use of digital, technology and data, driving culture change as well as managing their supply chain on a more commercial basis.
