Will DFES still make the decisions about who gets funding from the Emergency Services Levy? (V1.0)
The AVBFB has long argued that the decision-maker in terms of funding allocation should not also be a recipient of that funding – let alone the recipient of the biggest share of the funding.
The government has announced the creation of a new committee to provide independent oversight of funding decisions, but final details are not yet known so we are unsure of how much of an impact this committee will make on where ESL funding is allocated.
As soon as we know more, we will update this answer and notify those who have registered for updates.
