Sad News From Outset Youth Action

There was more sad news this week about a local voluntary organisation forced to close. Outset Youth Action issued this news release this week:“We are sad to announce that Outset Youth Action will be closing operations at the end of August 2018. This has not been an easy decision, nor one that has been made lightly. This is the outcome that the trustees have worked hard to try to avoid. Unfortunately the climate for funding organisations like Outset Youth Action is extremely difficult at present, and does not show any signs of improvement. This has been made worse by West Sussex County Council’s decision to no longer fund any work carried out by Outset Youth Action. We would like to take a moment to say a tremendous thank you to all of our volunteers, and our advisors who have worked incredibly hard alongside the rest of our staff team across all of our communities over the past 41 years. We would also like to thank all of our supporting organisations, and we wish them all the best in future in continuing to support the young people of West Sussex.” Voluntary Action Worthing would like to add its appreciation and thanks for the sterling work carried out by OYA over the years to encourage and support young volunteers.
