Youth services plan is changed

Have your say

PLANNED changes to youth services have been altered after thousands of people responded to a consultation.

Derbyshire Council was planning to close youth centres, with voluntary groups providing activities instead.

It is still planning to offer grants totalling £250,000 for the voluntary and community groups to provide youth activities, but has promised no youth centres or activities will close without suitable alternatives being provided.

The council said current spending in youth centres is inefficient because of low use of youth centres.
