Proposed cuts to Norfolk youth services could put young people at risk.

Charities in Norfolk are warning that proposed cuts to youth services could put vulnerable young people at risk. Norfolk County Council proposes to save more than £800,000 over three years by cutting funding to the Youth Advisory Boards and groups working with young people.

"It makes a huge difference supporting young people. Through their challenges at that time of life, be that through school, with families, with health and it sets them up for the rest of their life. So it's counter productive, it's such a good time for people to develop, get over problems and become successful, happy adults"

– Dan Mobbs, Chief Executive, MAP

The proposed funding cuts have been put out to public consultation and it closes at midnight on Thursday 14th January 2016. You can have your say or find out more here
