Youth clubs study shows they are situated in deprived area


CYP Now has analysed the locations of 710 youth clubs and centres from 25 local authorities of varying sizes against the government’s Indices of Multiple Deprivation. The study found that a quarter of all local authority-funded youth centres and clubs are in the 10% most deprived postcodes in England. Almost half are located in the 30% most deprived areas of the country.  The research also found that 132 clubs or centres across the 95 local authority areas potentially face having funding withdrawn.
