    Youth workers and youth services are meant to be at the heart of this governments agenda on working with young people - look at Northamptonshire today and see the value - this is a disgrace that workers and a service are being destroyed due to the wasting

    The youth service provides multiple valuable roles for young people in Northants and to take these away will make an unfillable trench in the provision of services for young people
  • 26 October 201591. Joy E
    The Youth Service should not be contracted out as this will mean loss of jobs to Youth Workers and loss of the essential services they provide. Contracting out may be cheaper to the council but young people will pay the price for this by not getting their

    Would anyone expect social work, policing or teaching to be handed over to volunteers without guidance, back up and leadership from practising, qualified and skilled people in their fields?

    it has been proved many times over that a good youth service deals with or prevents ASB and promotes respect. Money should be invested in this to prevent greater funding needed later for remedial action.
  • 19 July 201486. Steve Mcb
    JNC Conditions provide the very best arena to develop and deliver Youth Work. Moving to NJC will devalue and down grade the service to young people. Please dont let this happen, just when you are stating very clearly that there is a real need for a youth

    how cany you expect to combat anti social behaviour when the young people have nowhere to go in which to amuse themselves

    Lets give the little guy a chance
  • 27 April 201481. Mark S
    With growing concern about the state of our country's youth; how much sense does it make to put them back out onto the streets rather than actually develop a greater structure of youth-based facilities? Surely, more investment rather than reduction of fac
  • 31 March 201480. Chris S
    This is an appalling rejection of the importance of young people and their relevance to society as a whole. You cannot do Youth Work on the cheap.
  • 26 March 201479. Mark R
    Youth work is a public sector provision that should stay in the hands of local authorities or the voluntary sector. Commisioning out large chunks of the service will lead to a drop in standards and adversely affect communities up and down the country
  • 15 February 201478. Dave B
    This is madness - how can Youth Matters be taken forward in this county if these proposals go ahead. Who will the lead proffesionals be if there are none left!!!!
  • 25 January 201477. Angelina M
    I strongly object to young people being targeted as the problem of society, and then stripping back the services which should support them.
  • 17 August 201376. Simon E
    The destruction of youth services will seriously undermine every child matters, the respect agenda and what has been achieved under transforming Youth Work.

    I support this petition
  • 11 July 201374. Tracey M
    the cost is too high to the whole community. Its sometimes hard to test what the youth service does, but to remove it is the best way to find out. - the consequences will be dire

    I run a hostel for 16 - 18yrs old Y.P need all the help they can get , not to disregard their needs.

  • 02 November 201271. Martin R
    Society is falling apart because the youth of today are "bored" and everyone says there's nothing we can do about it. Please don't let it get any worse by cutting services to save money.
  • 19 August 201270. Sue J
    if you stop the youth service today what sort of nation will we have tomorrow? learn from past mistakes and dont make another

    Angry - does that say it all!
  • 08 March 201268. Robert M
    This service is a vital community service which should be kept in the councils domain and not privitised in any way,shape or form.

    I'm not one to name drop but on this petition, you are not reading the words of social halfwits. these are the words of people who are an integeral part of the function of this county. Do not pass off our words as this petition is just and worthy. Shame o
