Comprehensive Cuts 3 report published


NCVYS has published a third Comprehensive Cuts report, Comprehensive Cuts 3: Where are we now for young people and the voluntary and community youth sector?. The report examines the latest information on the impact of public spending cuts on young people and the voluntary and community youth sector (VCYS).

The report details the results of public spending cuts on local authority-funded youth services and their impact on the health of the voluntary and community youth sector (VCYS). The report contains case studies of how spending cuts have affected our members and their ability to support young people. This includes organisations offering information, advice and guidance services, health services, housing services, youth justice services and volunteering opportunities.

It explores issues including the latest evidence on youth employment and the Work Programme, Education Maintenance Allowance and higher education and student finance. It also summarises some of the new funding opportunities for young people and the voluntary sector.

NCVYS remains extremely concerned that the voluntary and community youth sector, which provides vital services for young people, is facing serious challenges owing to the reduced investment in the sector. Our members need support to fulfil the needs of the young people in our communities; investment in these services delivering significant cost savings to other areas.

Alongside the report NCVYS has published a one-page summary of the three Comprehensive Cuts reports, Comprehensive Cuts summary: Key points from the reports. It picks out some of the key evidence detailing the financial situation of the voluntary and community youth sector (VCYS).
