Kent, Somerset and North Somerset

CYPNow has reported that Kent County Council has revised its plans on the future of youth services and has pledged to provide more youth workers in schools and provide a new youth centre where an existing youth centre is set to close. This follows a consultation which received more than 700 responses.

CYPNow has reported that Somerset County Council has also revised its plans following a consultation. An additional £100,000 has been set aside to fund voluntary groups to provide youth services (taking the total to £1.3m). The report says that the withdrawal of direct youth services has been put back until 2014, with two youth centres remaining open until then.

The bid for a judicial review into North Somerset Council’s plans to cut youth services by 70% in Somerset has been granted.
