Save Derbyshire Unemployed Workers' Centres (DUWCs)
Petition Background (Preamble):
The Centres opened offices throughout North Derbyshire as the excellent reputation of the organisation spread. In the current recessionary times the free, independent welfare rights advice provided is needed as much as ever.
The £35,000 funding helps recover a total of approximately £1.8 million in under-paid welfare benefits, tax credits and lump sums won at Appeals Tribunals which is mostly spent on Derbyshire businesses and services.
The Save Derbyshire Unemployed Workers' Centres (DUWCs) petition to Derbyshire County Council was written by Colin Hampton and is in the category Local Government at GoPetition. Contact author here.
