Waves Project Weymouth DT4
A children’s charity in Weymouth is facing the axe after council bosses said they were ending its £80,000 a year funding. They had been expecting a decrease in county council funding for 2010/11 but not such a knockout blow.
The charity, which is the biggest provider of family and children’s services in Weymouth and Portland, employs four full-time and five part-time staff plus a team of volunteers.
They work with an average of 80 families annually and estimate they will have worked with 700 children and young people, with a variety of problems including suicidal tendencies, for the year up to March 2011.
