Proposed multi-million pound cuts to a pot of cash which helps support vulnerable people could lead to almost 600 job losses, Derbyshire County Council (DCC) has confirmed.

Earlier this week, the authority announced a raft of cost-cutting plans – including slashing £9m from its housing-related support (HRS) budget.

If the HRS budget is reduced, DCC would no longer require the services of a number of external providers, resulting in 60 job losses from within its own adult care department and 527 from those outside organisations.
