Home-Start Birmingham projects may be cut


Charity Home-Start says it may have to close projects supporting hundreds of families in Birmingham if the city council cuts funding.

Eight Home-Start schemes have been identified as being at risk of losing funding when the council unveils next year's budget.

Home-Start family services specialist Julie Garbett said if they closed families and children would suffer.

The council said it had to find £110m savings in 2013/14.
