Shropshire Council is consulting on Youth Support. They have been working to review the delivery of youth support in Shropshire. A Scrutiny Task and Finish Group has been exploring the delivery of existing support and good practice in youth provision. A review is necessary because the arrangements currently in place are due to come to an end and decisions need to be taken concerning how youth provision should be delivered in the future to best meet local needs. This local work is taking place alongside a national review launched on the 10 July 2019 into how local authorities should secure activities and services for young people. With an increase in youth crime, exploitation and demand on Children’s Social Care, there is a growing focus nationally, on the work local authorities need to undertake to ensure the most vulnerable young people can access and receive the support they need.
Before any decisions can be taken or future plans developed, Shropshire Council needs to understand the views of local people, children and young people and local services and organisations. This consultation is designed to obtain this important feedback.
