Support Young People - Oppose the 'My Place' Abandonment
'We the undersigned regret the decision of the Labour Council to abandon the 'My Place' project, which would have provided almost £5 million of investment in young people services, with a dedicated youth facility in the city centre and a mobile service operating across the city.
The 'My Place' project was developed by young people themselves for young people, and it is deplorable that one of the first acts of the new Labour administration has been to sabotage efforts to improve services in line with the priorities which young people have set.
We call on the Council to honour commitments previously made to implement the project, and to work with the Department for Education to provide the funding which had been earmarked for Newcastle.'
Thank you for your interest but we are no longer running this campaign.
