More cuts on the way? Young people in Cornwall asked to have their say on future of youth services

First published in News

Cornwall Council has launched a You Choose online survey asking young people to share their thoughts and views about what youth services support and activities are important to them.

Andrew Wallis, the council’s cabinet member for children and young people, wants as many young people as possible to take part in the survey.

Mr Wallis said: "“Cornwall Council, like other local authorities across England, are facing budget challenges that mean we need to do things differently, whilst still providing services that meet the changing needs of young people in Cornwall.

“The You Choose survey allows young people to share their views that will help inform how we shape future services.“

The survey, available here, is open to any young person aged 11 and over, is available by clicking on You Choose Updates and results will be posted on the 11+ Council website pages on the 11+ facebook page along with further opportunities for young people to get involved in "shaping the future of young people's service" in Cornwall.

"Mr Wallis wants as many young people to take part in the survey etc"

How can Cornwall Council be running a dictatorship? it was the public that democratically voted in all the councillors, and many of them were re elected, therefore presumably were not considered to be dictatorial. If the council did not seek the views of young people then no doubt it would attract criticism. By listening to the priorities of the majority of young people, the council can base their future decisions on them.

If Cllr Wallis is not a dictator then why doesn't he answer my email questions? To me that is dictating what he says goes and I can't ask questions, yet Cllr Haycock answered my questions by email.? So where's your answer to that one then? You have said on another article he always answers your questions by email, so why does he answer yours but not mine? Have you ever emailed Cllr Haycock?
What's the point in a survey for young people if he ignores emails surely he'll ignore a survey result.

The survey result has nothing to do with whether or not Councillor Andrew Wallis responds to emails, he will not be solely making any decisions based on the survey results.
In answer to your question, no I have never had reason to email Councillor Judith Haycock about the area she represents, and I have no idea why Councillor Andrew Wallis answers my email questions and not yours. If what you say is true, then he must have a justifiable reason for not answering your questions, because he has certainly shown extreme patience in answering mine.

The council have already conducted a survey with the public on spending and what the public think are priorities, so why not ask the young people now in this survey.
Reading some of your 'attitude to other people' and obnoxious comments on other articles on here I'm not surprised Cllr. Wallis doesn't answer your emails if you're the same with your emails as you are on here, take a look at your comment on the air day article for a start.

About time they cut services to OAPs, after all the baby boomers are the rischest cohort in British society. Some people complain about immigrants, but immigrants are necessary when working families are tax out of existence to support OAPs and those who won't work

Baby Boomer is defined as someone born between 1946 and 1964

Levels of direct taxation are lower since the 1990s, levels of indirect taxation are higher, baby boomer families wouldn't have had significant water rates for example, or other services such as access to free third level education, free dentistry, etc
Beacsue as a percentage of population formed by OAPs this means that the tax paying base has reduced, working families are taxed at higher levels than their parents.
It is widely demonstrated by socioeconomic studies (search the web for references, like you should have for meaning of baby boomer) that the generation post the baby boomers will be poorer, sicker and less educated than that generation, the baby boomers have undermined resources and politics to enrich themselves at the cost of their children and future generations

Baby Boomer is defined as someone born between 1946 and 1964

Levels of direct taxation are lower since the 1990s, levels of indirect taxation are higher, baby boomer families wouldn't have had significant water rates for example, or other services such as access to free third level education, free dentistry, etc
Beacsue as a percentage of population formed by OAPs this means that the tax paying base has reduced, working families are taxed at higher levels than their parents.

yeah whatever, some of us are too busy working to spend all day searching the Internet, you sound like wave, and I got free dentistry as a child. Go troll somewhere else.
