Impact of spending decisions on vulnerable children and families


Action for Children has published The Red Book 2012: The annual review of the impact of spending decisions on vulnerable children and families. The second in its series of annual reports examines the impact of public spending decisions on vulnerable children and families. It includes investigations into the lives of more than 46,000 children supported by the organisation in 150 communities across the UK.  It said that 2 out of 3 of the most vulnerable families were struggling with more severe issues than a year previously and with welfare reforms still to be implemented, it argued that the situation is ‘only going to get worse’. Nearly half of service managers surveyed (47%) have reported a reduction in youth services,  with 3% citing closures.
