Anti-cuts campaigns and local Unions have warned Lambeth of the dangers of cutting Youth Services in a borough with some of the worst instances of child poverty and youth unemployment in the country. The recent disturbances that swept Britain illustrate the utter madness of cutting children’s service the way the Lambeth Labour Council are doing. Children’s Services in the borough have already had over £12 million worth of cuts in 2010/11 and this has meant the almost total destruction of the in-house Adventure Playground Service, severe cut backs in opening hours in One O’clock Clubs and mass sackings of dedicated children’s services staff. Children and Young Peoples Services (CYPS) is now facing another round of cuts estimated at over £13 million that will hit youth services even harder. We must stop these cuts, we must defend the future of our young people and children. Join the demonstration, we demand Lambeth – Give Our Youth a Future!
