Youth service remodelling consultation

Closed 12 Apr 2017

Opened 18 Jan 2017

Feedback Updated 2 Jan 2018

We Asked

We put forward three proposals to seek views on how you would like the youth service to be delivered, and who you would like to deliver it (local government or voluntary sector).
 

You Said

There were 1,044 responses to the consultation proposals, giving a wide range of views. Many respondents provided comments and made further suggestions. A more comprehensive report will be available in due course.

We Did

The findings from the responses received have helped to inform the new delivery model for the youth service which will be implemented from February 2018. Again, further details will be available in due course.

Overview

Continued reductions in government funding mean that Leicester City Council needs to make additional budget savings of £55 million by April 2019. This is on top of the £100 million of savings already made.

All council departments will be affected by financial cuts, including Education and Children’s Services, which delivers youth services.

As a result, we are proposing to change the way youth services are delivered. This includes the following services:

  • One to one support for young people
  • Open access youth clubs
  • Street based youth services
  • Youth clubs for young carers
  • Youth clubs for young people with special educational needs and disabilities
  • Youth involvement and participation
  • Other youth services funded by Leicester City Council

We will refer to young people with special educational needs and disabilities as SEND throughout this questionnaire.

In order to make the necessary savings, we are considering three different options.

The closing date for responses is 12 April 2017.
