Cuts Watch #303: Local cuts in front line services

09 Nov 2010, by in Cuts Watch

Local press stories on the impacts that cuts are having on people’s lives are now widespread. For example in Wiltshire, a scheme to support long-term unemployed people into jobs has been cut, the County Durham-based Business & Enterprise North East is looking to make 135 redundancies from its 416-strong workforce and in Bristol a new school for children with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties are being redrawn as a result of Government cuts.

In Northumberland a new scheme supporting the parents of disabled children with childcare costs is now under review and in Leicester a scheme to give children access to laptop computers looks likely to be cut.

As local councils come to terms with their 2011/12 budgets, the scale and scope of these cuts will only get worse.
