Costs of public services

When demonstrating the value of voluntary and community sector services, it can be interesting and powerful to show what costs to the public purse have been prevented from occurring.

For information on how much different services cost to provide, see the following sources:

  • University of Kent's, Personal Social Services Research Unit Unit Costs of Health and Social Care (up to 2016)
  • New Economy Manchester's Unit Cost Database (2015) - information on crime, education & skills, employment & economy, fire, health, housing and social services.
