Cuts Watch #62: Local services report cuts

15 Jun 2010, by in Cuts Watch

More local services are reporting cuts in provision – with the most deprived areas (as the TUC reported today) facing the greatest cuts.

In Liverpool, the Echo report that budgets will be cut by £25 million this year. With close to 6,000 young people in the city claiming JSA, Liverpool’s Director of Regeneration has also warned that cuts to the Future Jobs Fund will have a disproportionate impact on the local area.

In Hartlepool 60 jobs are on the line this year, with the leader of the council predicting that up to a quarter of the council’s workforce could find themselves unemployed within three years.

New homes are at risk in Haverhill, teenage pregnancy projects will be cut in Bath, community cohesion services are facing a £200,000 cut in Bradford and social care services are under threat in Leicester. The list goes on.
