Securing the best start in life for our children and young people

Investing in youth recreational programmes


Doncaster Council

In order to make sustainable improvements to the aspiration, achievement and life skills of young people across the borough, Doncaster Council has committed £475,000 to support the development of Expect Youth (EY). The programme delivers over 40 activities in collaboration with 20 specialist delivery organisations. EY aims to bring together a range of extra-curricular programmes to develop essential life skills such as resilience, self-confidence, leadership, honesty, integrity, engaged citizenship, respect and empathy. At the Expect Youth Summer programme alone, 3,462 young people facing disadvantage took part in activities such as Zorbing, First Aid Training, Hair and Beauty, Castle Club, Dance, Multi Sports, and many more.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
