Council youth cuts “shortsighted”

Across the Gospel Oak estates, the number one concern on the doorstep is about young people hanging around with nothing to do. There is real anger that the Council has protected youth services in Highgate and Somers Town, but pulled them out of Gospel Oak.

Jill Fraser, Liberal Democrat candidate for Gospel Oak, said “The staff and volunteers at Queen’s Crescent Community Association do a great job of running a youth club during the week, but it relies on donations and grants – it can’t replace the Council-run youth and careers service that the Labour Council cut last year. The Liberal Democrats believe that councils should be required by law to provide youth services - young people deserve good local services like the rest of us!”
