Plans to Cut EA Youth Services Deeply Concerning – Kimmins

Sinn Féin MLA Liz Kimmins said she is shocked and deeply concerned about plans by the Education Authority to cut vital youth services.
The Newry and Armagh MLA said:
“The news of the cuts has come as a shock to the groups and people who supply these services such as outreach services to some of our most vulnerable young people.
“The impact of these cuts will be devastating for youth providers, youth services and ultimately for young people
“I will be contacting youth providers across Newry and Armagh to hear their concerns and to offer any advice or support that I can
 “These cuts come hot on the heels of the cruel Tory budget announced here following the DUP’s boycott of our Assembly and Executive.
“People are struggling with the cost of living and our health service is under huge pressure and now youth and education services are being targeted for cuts.
“The DUP should get back to work around the Executive table with the other parties to get locally elected ministers in place and support the public against unbridled Tory cuts.”
