Future of youth activities in Derbyshire
What this consultation is about
The move aims to give more young people greater opportunities to take part in youth activities when and where they want them.
It could mean voluntary and community groups play an even bigger part in delivering activities for 13 to 19-year-olds.
Under the proposals we would:
continue to provide qualified youth workers to support vulnerable young people and families facing difficulties
no longer provide front-line activities for teenagers including youth clubs and its mobile service - currently we provide around 30 per cent of youth activities in Derbyshire
set up a Youth Activities Grants scheme to support new projects, voluntary, community and independent groups
carry out a review of its youth centres to transfer or dispose of the buildings.
We held a series of events around the county in January and February as part of our consultation on the proposed changes.
Scrutiny committee meeting
A public meeting of the Improvement and Scrutiny People Committee was held on Saturday 18 February at County Hall, Matlock.
The purpose of this meeting was to listen to views from supporters and dissenters as well as other interested parties on the current proposals to change the council's provision of youth activities. This was separate from the stakeholder consultation meetings being held by the Children and Younger Adults department and aimed to allow the scrutiny committee to gather evidence before responding to the proposals.
The consultation closed on 18 March 2012. Information about the consultation events that took place, and the information referred to at these events, can be found in the Supporting documents section of this page.
The results of the consultation are available to view in the Results document section at the bottom of this page. A full copy of the report - New Youth Offer - was presented to Cabinet 12 June 2012.
