Overview

This proposal will reduce the budget for the Youth Service, including staff, premises costs and diversionary activities. 

It is proposed to delete vacant posts and reduce operational costs, whilst minimising the impact on frontline services when compared to those being delivered now.  We propose to reduce the hours of youth work available per week by 45 or 13.8%. There are no plans to reduce the number of youth centres managed by the Youth Service.

The indicative saving for this proposal is £100,000

As the proposal will affect service users, we have undertaken an Equality Impact Assessment to identify likely or actual effects on people with protected characteristics.
