Dorset, Devon and Camden


Dorset County Council is making cuts of £4.5million to children’s services in the next financial year. Cuts to the provision of careers advice and support to 16 to 19-year-olds to find employment or training is expected to save £650,000. The Waves Project, a charity which is the biggest provider of family and children’s services in Weymouth and Portland, has lots £80,000-a-year funding.

Devon County Council has said about 900 jobs will have to go because of government spending cuts. Children and young people’s services will be cut by 13%, and with the council likely to protect safeguarding children and children in care budgets, youth services are at risk.

Camden Council plans to reduce its children, schools and families budget by £36million. It will reduce the range of youth services and make up to a £2.5 million reduction in funding for the voluntary and community sector
