Youth service cuts

Cuts to Youth Services across Derbyshire will be debated at a meeting in Alfreton.

It takes place at the Genesis Centre, Alfreton, on February 3, at 5.30pm.

A petition calling on people to “oppose the council’s plans to close its youth centres and make up to 157 youth workers redundant” has been signed by over 800 people.

A ten-week consultation about the cuts closes on March 18. People can take part on the council’s website or call 01629 535700 for a paper copy.
