Staffordshire County Council are considering reducing the budget for youth services. There is an online petition where you can register your discontent if that worries you. moderngov.staffordshire.gov.uk/mgEPetitionDisplay.aspx?id=93
Colleagues at colleges have assured me that these cuts would have a devastating effect on under privileged teenagers.
I have to say I admire Staffordshire County Council for being determined to keep library services open, so let's hope they can find the resources to do both. Roll on the economic recovery!!!
