Council chiefs have injected hundreds of thousands of pounds into the county’s under-threat children’s centres.

The £322,400 boost from Derbyshire County Council (DCC) will see more advice sessions in the centres, offering families help on a range of issues including housing, debt management and finding a job.

The announcement comes as DCC is carrying out a public consultation on controversial plans to close seven of the centres to save £1.1million.
