In Lambeth services for young people have been cut to the bone. Take the Grove adventure playground I'm involved in. A group of local volunteers have reopened it. The Council haven't helped at all. They see it as a development site. Young people in Lambeth have very little in the way of youth provision. Knee jerk populist measures which go down well with public ( see posts here) work in that sense but don't do anything to deal with underlying issues. Youth provision cuts is one of them.
