Ase Study: Consider the role of the youth work manager in leading and managing change within the current shifting political and financial climate

The case study (that needs editing) reads and flows very well. However, I would like to concentrate on a particular scenario in order to clearly demonstrate the focus of the analysis.

Here are the particular scenarios:
* How has the political climate/influence impacted on the services in my area?
* How do the services available to young people differ from those 5-10 years ago?
For specific information about above mentioned scenarios, please see the attached Report: Impacts of Cuts to Youth Services on Young People at WU.

Please note that after editing the case studys overall word count must not exceed 2500-2700.

Referencing Requirements:
References already included in the report that need editing. New reference should be cited if the edited text requires it.
