IхЪam appalled that the Tory Government has cut funding for vital Children’s Services in St Helens borough by хЃ13,962,762 since 2010/11.
Spending on early intervention strategies and preventative services have been particularly affected. This means that local authorities are forced to shift spending to late intervention statutory services at a point where the negative impact on children’s lives will be significantly higher.
A coalition of children’s charities has warned that unless the Government invests хЃ3billion, local authorities will run the serious risk of being unable to keep children safe and well.
These cuts are having a significant impact on the life chances of the most vulnerable children. I am calling on the Government to provide the critical investment that children’s services so desperately need.
