Have your say

A service that supports families in the High Peak is at risk of losing its funding as the cash–strapped council looks for ways of saving money.

Home–Start High Peak is among the many non–profit organisations fighting to get financial help from Derbyshire County Council – at the same time the authority is looking to save £157million from its budget over the next four years.
