YMCA England & Wales is calling on the Government to prioritise young people and reinvest in youth services. Since 2010/11, youth services such as youth clubs and youth workers have been cut by 69%.
M.i. Media have launched a performance focused campaign across Social Media and Outdoor sites to drive sign ups to a petition to save youth services.
Youth services exist to provide a sense of belonging, a safe space, and the opportunity for some of the most vulnerable young people, to enjoy being young. YMCA are calling on the Government to prioritise young people and reinvest in youth services by meeting the following 3 tests:
Reinstate and ring-fence youth services funding to 2010/11 level
Provide universal youth services and targeted support for all young people
Create a national youth service strategy
