Results of Sheffield Futures budget cuts

Monday, October 18, 2010

During the summer Sheffield Futures learnt that their budget for this year was being cut by Sheffield City Council by 700,000 and it was feared that this could mean a loss of up to 95 jobs. Sheffield Futures is a charity that helps young people get into work, and as part of this runs the Connexions youth careers service as well as personal development and social inclusion projects. 


Local MP Meg Munn received letters from constituents concerned about the effect on the service, and from employees worried about losing their jobs. She consequently arranged to meet Lucy Oliver, Sheffield Futures Chief Executive, to discuss the implications.


Ms. Oliver explained the processes that had been undertaken to minimise the effect on the service and to avoid compulsory redundancies. Unfortunately, there will still be a small number of compulsory redundancies, while other staff have chosen to take voluntary redundancy.


Meg said:


"It was clear that the management of Sheffield Futures have worked hard to reduce the impact of this cut in their budget. However I remain concerned for the young people who rely on them for advice about future learning and careers.


It’s also worrying to hear that the youth service will suffer cuts too. If young people don’t have the opportunity to take part in positive activities they can get involved in anti-social behaviour which can be more costly to society and disastrous for them.


We are going to be hearing a lot about cuts over the next few months. While we recognise the need to reduce the country’s financial deficits it does not make sense to target these cuts on young people who represent the future."
