Mayoral Statement – Youth Service Review

2Mayor John Biggs has issued a statement on the future of the council’s youth service. It follows a comprehensive review of the service that aimed to address historic delivery problems.

Mayor Biggs said: “We are being open and honest about shortcomings in youth service delivery and taking immediate steps to resolve them. To address the issues identified, the council is moving to an interim model that will meet the needs of our young people and offer consistent delivery of a range of high-quality services, six days a week, in a smaller number of venues.

We are wholeheartedly committed to delivering a youth service that is fit for purpose and are continuing to review our work, with ongoing input from the community and young people.”
