Kate has acknowledged expertise in the field of value for money and is the author of several positive-practice guides developed for Housing Support commissioners.

Local authorities have to achieve more for less. Budgets may be tight but quality and good outcomes remain key. Kate is assisting a number of housing support providers and commissioners to work more cost effectively to ensure that key services are maintained.

Reviews of service budgets, cost modelling, benchmarking and analysing are used alongside Appreciative Inquiry and SOAR to reach a positive, solution focused approach in collaboration and cooperation with all relevant stakeholders.

In taking this bespoke approach to each case Kate provides more than a simple ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to achieving efficiency and VfM. By identifying specific positive areas, service provision can be maintained despite a squeeze on resources and ‘blanket cuts’ are avoided.
