SFL101 - Review Youth Service Provision

Closed 12 Dec 2012

Opened 18 Sep 2012


Outline of Proposal

It is proposed that the Youth Service is restructured and that:

  • The numbers of senior management posts are reduced as well as a small number of front line youth work posts and admin support. 
  • The budget allocated for commissioning of adult volunteering with the Youth Service is reduced.
  • Cleaning and caretaking costs across Youth Service managed sites is reduced
  • The number of mobile facilities is reduced from 3 to 2.


General Impact

The core offer of the Youth Service will be unaffected by these proposals. Face to face youth work with young people will be the key priority and support will continue to be provided to a diverse range of youth groups. The Youth Service will retain sufficient youth workers to rapidly and flexibly respond to potential youth nuisance issues

Impact on Service Users   

As the service works with 13-19 year olds, it is this group of young people who may be impacted.  There will be a small reduction in additional activities for young people particularly during the holidays and there will be some reduction in mobile provision.

The indicative saving for this proposal is £350,000.

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. The Equality Impact Assessment will be reviewed and updated as required, taking account of consultation feedback.
