Devon and York

NCVYS member Voluntary Youth Services Devon has received notice that its long standing Service Level Agreement (SLA) with the Local Authority Youth Service is being withdrawn early in the new financial year. One member of staff has been already been made redundant and the organisation will also lose their manager who as a part of the SLA was seconded to this role by the Youth Service. This cut of £47,000 “will result in a significant reduction in the infrastructure services currently being provided to the voluntary youth sector in Devon.”

City of York Council will be cutting £205,000 from the Connexions service – which offers careers advice, guidance and support for young people who might otherwise be unable to continue in education or training, or get a job – and £109,000 from the youth offending team. Other savings will come from integrating youth services under a single management team. Cuts are also being made to the Supporting People, music teaching and libraries budgets. The Council is providing an additional £1 million for schools with pupils from particularly poor backgrounds.
