The Coalition Government (2010-15) marked a shift in service delivery which saw an ever-changing amount of responsibility being passed to local authorities.

Brevia has supported a range of local authorities, membership organisations, and alliances with a range of services including event management, public affairs training, and campaigning support.

Businesses whose investments depend on policy decisions yet to come must be mindful of this. As the question of Scottish Independence may leave politicians and officials will little time to consider anything else.
