Labour consultation on national statutory youth service

31 Jul 2018 - 15:28 by helen.walker

The Labour Party has issued a consultation document on youth services. 

They state that "Youth services do a vital job in our communities. The benefits they provide for young people are real and long-lasting. However, with direct government funding to local authorities falling by a half since 2010, youth services have seen significant cutbacks as councils seek to make savings. This means that a generation of young people could potentially be left without the opportunity to play a full part in our communities."
