Cat Smith MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Young People, in response to the Government’s announcement of £16.5 million for youth covid-19 support fund, said:

“This insufficient funding fails to deliver on the Conservatives’ Manifesto pledge of £500m to the youth sector, leaving youth organisations on the brink of collapse.

“With one in four youth organisations facing closure before Christmas, this sum is a kick in the teeth to a sector already on its knees and to the young people who rely on the support of youth services.”
