Setting our budget for 2018/19

We're setting our budget for 2018/19. Throughout the budget setting process, our aims are to protect the most vulnerable, get basic services right and growing an economy that benefits everyone.

Government funding for public services is decreasing and demand for our services is increasing. We're balancing our budget and investing in essential services.
