Back in January, 2,000 young people added their name to the ‘Choose Youth’  letter to the Prime Minister, in which they spoke of their fears for the future of local youth services.

They received a response from Tim Loughton MP, the minister responsible for national policy on services for young people, who was passed the letter by Mr Cameron.

Choose Youth believes that this has not really addressed the fact that young people are experiencing cuts to their services, and shows how they are stuck between MPs and local councillors blaming each other for spending cuts.

So ‘Choose Youth’ want to hear from you!

What are your views? How do you think we should respond?

Please send a quote or comment and it will be included in their response to the minister. Post your comments on the Choose Youth Facebook page

Deadline for your comments is Friday 15th April.

It’s not that many young people do not have aspirations. It is that they are blocked. It is not that they do not have talent. To coin a phrase, Britain’s Got Talent – lots of it. It is not ability that is unevenly distributed in our society. It is opportunity.” (Alan Milburn, MP)
