Save Camden youth services

This petition had 1,126 supporters
George Binette started this petition to Cllr Gould (Cllr for young people) and

Camden's Labour council has approved a widespread cuts package, including massive £1.6 million cuts to youth services which already suffered £2.3 million of cuts in 2012. This will leave the service over 60% worse off in real terms than in 2011. We believe this will have a significant detrimental impact on young people in Camden as opportunities and positive activities will be slashed.

Here are the headline changes:

  • £1.6 million in funding cuts
  • 64% cut in universal youth service provision
  • closure of two youth centres
  • closure of the COOL project funding activities for low income young people
  • 70% budget cut to Connexions careers and jobs support for young people
  • further cuts to the youth offending service
  • 25 to 30 full-time equivalent jobs lost
