We are seeking views on proposals to reduce funding for the Connexions service which currently operates under a budget of £904,300 per year. Two proposals have been put forward that will reduce the budget by £241,000 and £375,500, respectively.

We would very much like to hear your views on the proposals, details of which can be found on the Leicester City Council consultation website: https://consultations.leicester.gov.uk/

The consultation runs from Tuesday 12 November until Friday 31 January 2020
