It is not true that the LDA is planning a £765,000 reduction in the Young Londoners' Fund. The sum referred to is expenditure previously budgeted for 2009/10 but which has been re-profiled into 2010/11. Additional time was taken getting the contracting process right eg involving young people themselves in the assessments to ensure relevance to their needs which had a knock on effect on issuing contracts with the third sector delivery partners.
