    "Youth Work Saves Lives - Now We Must Save Youth Work"

    Please join us for our chaired panel discussion on the future of Youth Services at our Regional Conference on Saturday 21st October at Southwell Minster School

    The Youth Service, across the country, has seen devastating cuts in recent years, as have youth services more widely. Research has shown that around £387m has been cut from Youth Services by local authorities since 2010. Councils, in turn, blame Central Government for this by referencing the reduced budgets they're having to deal with.

    The recent Leicester City Council Full Meeting had angry reactions from Members as the Lord Mayor, who Chairs the Council Meetings initiated a 30 second ruling for backbench and opposition members for supplementary questions to City Mayor, Labour's Sir Peter Soulsby.

    Leicester's Liberal Democrat Councillor, Nigel Porter, representing Aylestone Ward has said it is "a restriction intended to protect the Mayor from scrutiny and would ignore it."

    Brexit isn't either all good or all bad. It's a very complicated mixture - with some good and bad consequences. During the Brexit negotiations it is important that our politicians understand those areas where there is potential for bad things to happen, so that they take care to avoid them.

    One of the most threatened areas is the 'British' motor manufacturing industry. This industry employs 169,000 people in this country, but it is not British owned, nor does it produce cars using only British components. Its owners are from Japan, France, Germany, India, America etc.. It assembles cars using many imported components - 79% of them from the EU.
