Youth services remodelling consultation

Continued reductions in government funding mean we need to make additional budget savings of £55 million by April 2019, on top of the £100 million of savings already made.

As a result, we are proposing to change the way youth services are delivered. This affects the following areas:

  • One-to-one support for young people
  • Open access youth clubs
  • Street-based youth services
  • Youth clubs with young carers
  • Youth clubs for young people with special educational needs and disabilities
  • Youth involvement and participation
  • Other youth services funded we fund.

We're considering three different options to make the necessary savings. This is subject to a public consultation which is open until 12 April 2017. You can take part in the consultation by following the quick link above.
