Cuts Watch #40: Extended schools and youth services face cuts

08 Jun 2010, by in Cuts Watch

Futher details are emerging on the impact of local government cuts, which, combined with removal of ringfencing, are reportedly placing various front-line services under threat. These include:

  • extended schools (which provide 8am – 6pm activities for children, allowing more parents to balance work and care);
  • the youth opportunities fund (which provide young people with decision making power over local investment in youth projects and facilities) and;
  • community policing (services that deal with minor offences and with tackling anti-social behaviour).

Council regeneration staff have also told Regeneration & Renewal that they are preparing for significant reductions.
