Have your say on youth services
7:20am Saturday 26th October 2013 in News
THE MP for East Thurrock is calling on residents to have their say on youth services.
Stephen Metcalfe wants people to fill in an online survey, run by Essex County Council, as the local authority begins to look at efficiency savings.
The Essex Youth Service needs to make savings over the next two years of £3million.
Mr Metcalfe said it is important young people have a space where they can meet their friends and gain new qualifications and skills.
He said: “It is vital local people get to have their say on youth service provision.
“It is a service that has knock-on effects to many aspects of community life and any decision made by Essex County Council should therefore be shaped by the views of the local community.”
“I would encourage all constituents young and old to complete the survey to have their say.”
