This report explores community based youth services and asks how they have changed since the introduction of austerity policies. It quotes from an earlier report which focussed on organisations working with children and young people.
One key issue is how Neighbourhood Based Organisations (NBOs) have responded to the Government’s challenge to abandon grant funding in favour of earned income.
This report discusses the following points:
- Have they transformed themselves into social enterprises, fighting for and winning public sector contracts?
- Are they thriving in a new entrepreneurial spirit, generating their own income and providing an ever-increasing range of services in the areas where they are based?
This study also looks at how NBOs are responding to local government cuts and the continuing economic recession.
