  2. Identify challenges: Toolkit identifies key challenges for creditworthiness based on the self-assessment results
  3. Prioritise your challenges: Local authority chooses and ranks challenges based on local priorities
  4. Create your action plan: Toolkit guides local authority through options to address these challenges
  5. Download your action plan & report: Local authority receives customized creditworthiness self-assessment and preliminary action plan report
  6. Refine and implement action plan: Local authority refines and implements it action plan to strengthen its financial performance and creditworthiness
