Consider the youngsters (Jenny Henry)

Perhaps this is a good time, with all the talk of the SIC’s investments and rising funds, to write in the hope that at next Wednesday’s full council meeting, councillors consider very carefully and seriously the proposed severe cuts in the islands’ youth work service.

Take time to consider the implications and consequences such cuts will have, both on our communities and our children and young people – the children and young people who are, after all, Shetland’s future and thereby surely the best investment of all.
