Cat Smith MP responding to the Chancellor’s announcement of funding of youth services

Cat Smith MP, Shadow Minister for Youth Affairs, responding to the Chancellor’s announcement of funding of youth services, said:

“It’s about time the government started to invest in our young people, however the Chancellor’s announcement falls far short from the funding needed to rebuild our decimated youth service.

“We cannot trust this government is serious about ending austerity and championing young people’s needs.

“Instead of quick fixes, Labour will match the ambition of our young people by giving them the support they need, so that every young person can access high quality youth work in their community.”
