In December 2010, Lewisham received its Children and Young Peoples settlement summary from the Government.
Previously, 41% of the Children and Young Peoples budget has come from grants, in December it was confirmed that ring fencing would be removed from these grants, and that they would be rolled into one Early Intervention Grant. Lewisham saw a 20% reduction. This significant cut from the Government requires Lewisham to rethink how services should be shaped.
