Imagine this being an empty room in the Indian Community Centre! Imagine that all of the elderly ladies stayed at home!
Imagine that they didn’t have a chance to find out about local services! Imagine that they missed out on many great opportunities to make their life better.
Imagine that they didn’t have the chance to exchange information with friends which could keep them safe, and healthy!
Imagine that they didn’t meet Council staff who could help them sort out many of life’s problems
Imagine that they didn’t realise that their neighbours could help them stay safe
Imagine if you could fund just 1 person, and get 15 extra people to work for free – purely based on goodwill. What great value for money!
Imagine if Derby City Council decided that this should stop!
Imagine what the cost impact will be on social services, health services, cohesion, and the quality of life for a hard to reach population.
Imagine that the Council were actually suggesting that they can’t afford this…just for the price of 1 Councillor’s allowances! ( We’d still have 50 left)
Imagine that it was not just this group, but another 27 organisations all doing equally worthy work in the community for the vulnerable people in this City.
You can’t ! You just can’t imagine that anyone would be that stupid!
