Parliamentary debate on the charitable sector


Baroness Smith of Basildon, formerly a Minister for the Third Sector, has spoken in House of Lords about impact of cuts on voluntary and community youth services. She spoke in a debate on the the role of the charitable sector in strengthening civil society. A number of other Peers, including Baroness Benjamin (former children’s television presenter and actor) and Baroness Ritchie of Brompton (chair of the Local Government Association’s Children and Young People Board) who were making their maiden speeches, also spoke about youth services.
