About This Blog

The public should know all we can about the business of the decision makers that affect our lives, our wallets and our democracy. This is a record of my efforts to try and improve the levels of transparency and accountability within Sheffield City Council and others. To shine a light on how decisions are made and where the money goes. If I can also help others to find their own voice and influence along the way, then that is a bonus.

Nov 2012 - NOW THEN Magazine #56 , "Outsourcing. Public Services, Private Profits" by Nigel Slack

"Outsourcing. Public Services, Private Profits" by Nigel Slack
In Sheffield's Now Then Magazine issue no.56 - November 2012

Nigel - "My first article for Now Then magazine about ‘Public Services, Private Profits’, beginning my efforts to bring the information I was gathering to a wider audience to develop a more open debate on the subject. It looks at who provides our public services (bins, road repairs, care homes etc) how much we spend on these private companies and tries to address how much profit they make out of the public purse."
