Dear Ceredigion Council, please could you supply the following details that I understand that you have. I'm interested in the services that are provided for youth in the bigger wards (often the poorest) in the county and how the budget is then allocated to such areas. - Youth Services

The total amount of funding as a total and as a percentage spent on the Penparcau ward.
Services and activities that will be run in this particular ward in the next year. e.g a list of Summer Activities, trips, clubs, etc.
I would also be interested in any strategy, policy and documents that outline any reasoning for the spend in the county and in the Penparcau area.

Dear Dr Chamberlain
In relation to your FOI request please note:
The information provided below relate to the Ceredigion Youth Service. In
your email you refer to Youth Services. Youth Services is a generic term
that applies to a whole host of groups, organisations and other providers
that provide services to young people. The County does not hold
information in such detail as to be able to answer your questions in
relation to all these services. We have therefore provided what
information we hold in relation to the questions that we are able to
People classed as youth:
Youth Service definition of Youth is 11 -25
Total number for Ceredigion 19,167 (11 - 25 )
Total number for Penparcau - and as a percentage of the total 683
1. Full budget for Youth Service:
The Council core budget for the Youth Service is £359,544.
2. Full details in terms of Grants and other associated monies
allocated to Youth Services.
For the past three years the Youth Service has received a revenue grant
from the Welsh Government. This is to the value of £82,048.
3. The total amount of funding as a total and as a percentage spent
on the Penparcau ward.
The total is therefore £441,592. We do not hold information in relation to
the amount of this money that is spent in Penparcau and we are unable to
provide such detail for any of the wards in Ceredigion. This is due to the
structure of the service and the nature of the work and service delivery.
4. Services and activities that will be run in this particular ward
in the next year. e.g a list of Summer Activities, trips, clubs, etc.
Various areas of our work impact on Penparcau. This includes the Youth
Club, Outreach Work, Youth Workers in Schools and our countywide
programmes. At present we have not set our summer activity programmes for
5. I would also be interested in any strategy, policy and documents
that outline any reasoning for the spend in the county and in the
Penparcau area. I'm presuming that the money is allocated equally on a
'same amount per-head' basis. If not, is there are there reasons behind
some area getting more funding than others?
The work of the Youth Service aligns to various national strategies
including The Youth Work Strategy for Wales and The Youth Engagement and
Progression Framework as well as county council corporate aims and
objectives. The way that the funding is allocated is based on a
combination of service provision including clubs, programmes and
activities, D of E, School Youth Work and Outreach Work. The service
constantly reviews its work and provision to ensure that it is getting
best value for money as well as best possible impact and also meeting
identified and agreed priorities based on the previously mentioned aims
As previously mentioned the total budget for the Youth Service is
£441,592. This equates to a spend per head for Ceredigion of £17.00.
