Cambridgeshire, Croydon and Southwark


Cambridgeshire County Council is set to cut £1m by merging youth work and Connexions services. The equivalent of 38 full-time jobs will be lost as youth clubs and holiday activities are ended and help will only be targeted at vulnerable children and teenagers.

Croydon Council anticipates that its intensive family support projects and collaborative initiatives such as Total Place will save more than £8.4m between 2011 and 2014.

Southwark Council has told voluntary organisations that it will be forced to pass on part of a possible £80m reduction in its budget, and has suggested that the sector should prepare for funding cuts of at least 25%.
