Well done to all the winners at G52‘a Celebration of Achievement Awards. It was great to be able to present certificates again this year and hear about all the positive work from individuals at Gamesley to support families, children and people in need.
There’s a great community at Gamesley doing all they can in the face of huge cuts to the council support, policing, schools, nurseries and welfare, but it’s tragic to hear the number of children who need safeguarding is increasing now that Derbyshire’s Conservative County Council have cut 250 Early Help Staff, meaning there’s far less support for families before the situation gets serious. Children are affected for the rest of their lives. This is why we need a government that will invest in the services we need to keep children safe.
