Children and Young People are our towns future, I feel more needs to be put into child and youth services for preventive work to be done. The raise in referrals to professionals such as CAMHS is no surprise given the cuts to services back in 2010. Waiting lists for services and support for families, children and young people are full, yes we as a government are reacting but if more was put into preventatively services then this reactive crisis wouldn’t be under so much pressure. I believe currently we are failing our children, lets make a change. Invest in youth centres, clubs, sports, safe spaces and information and advice supportive services for their future.
