    The information above has many of the 3rd sector agencies duplicated many time’s. MASC, the market centre, Action 4 youth and young careers are repeated lots of times.
    Having a list of agencies that are in Tiverton is useful to an extent. However it doesn’t say what they offer, how many hours do they operate or are they just offices for organisations. It would seem that Tiverton has a well stocked arsenal of third sector agencies but this fails to reflect what people are able to truly access. For example MASC offers a youth session for young people with disabilities once every 2 weeks which is fantastic. However this is far less than they were offering 12 months ago as they were also running a weekly session along side their bi-weekly session. They had to close this due to lack of funding. From ongoing conversions with 3rd sector agencies I know funding and finding new volunteers are a constant struggle and provision is shrinking.

    I feel this process would be more meaningful if it was more in-depth giving a true picture of the offer for young people in Tiverton.
