Update on Powys Youth Services
Over the course of the last year Powys County Council's Youth Service has entered a period of significant change in managing its affairs during the continued austerity felt across the whole of public service.
The Service has reduced its direct presence in local communities, and with directly run youth clubs now provided in Llandrindod Wells, Newtown, Welshpool, Brecon and Ystradgynlais. The county's high schools continue to be supported by the Service for those learners needing extra support and engagement. The Service also continues to support the important work of the Young Farmers' Clubs in Powys and also the Urdd.
However, as you may be aware the Service has been challenged to reduce its costs by 50% by 2018-19, and whilst significant budget savings have been achieved, the Service needs to start planning for budget reductions for a year's time. No formal proposals have been put forward at this time, but the Service is looking to review viable options and will be seeking discussions with the new Cabinet and local members, and other key stakeholders once the local government elections have concluded.
