SHEFFIELD City Council is facing the threat of legal action over proposed cuts to early years services.

A client of Sheffield Law Centre has formally notified the authority she intends to take it to court on the basis that it allegedly failed to comply with consultation procedures, equality duties and Government guidance not to cut funding to the voluntary sector more than the council’s own services.

The council is looking to reorganise its early years services in a bid to save £3.5m.
