Hidden Grant Cuts

When Yvette Cooper said that women would bear the brunt of the cuts, I disagreed and still do. I think that the real losers are children and young people who have been quite frankly targeted by this Coalition Government.

The obvious cuts that reflect this is the Building Schools for the Future cut and the Future Jobs Fund, which was designed to support young people into employment.

However, the most alarming element of the cuts to our schools is in the detail. The small hidden grants. This includes help for things such as teenage pregnancy, advice for children and families, debt advice, all being cut grant by grant as highlighted by Councillor Mary Arnold in the Willesden and Brent Times this week.

Would young people be targeted as much if they were able to vote?
