Save Derbyshire Care Homes | GMB Win

Victory - 29/05/2020

In the face of the GMB campaign and mounting public pressure to save Derbyshire's Care homes, Derbyshire County Council have today announced a reversal of plans to close seven care homes in the county.

The plan to close these Derbyshire care homes, putting hundreds of jobs at risk in the care sector, was a bad idea from day one.

GMB is proud of each and every care worker that has made this happen and we will continue to fight for them every step of the way.

Sign our open letter to Council Leader Barry Lewis

Conservative run Derbyshire County Council and it's leader Councillor Barry Lewis are considering the closure of seven care homes across Derbyshire, threatening to push hundreds of elderly local residents and hard working care staff into uncertainty.

GMB Midland & East Coast is backing the calls of local residents, families and staff in saying enough is enough; Derbyshire County Council must take a step back and review this decision before it's too late.

We're out campaigning with local people to save these care homes. Rather than closing care homes, we think Councillor Barry Lewis should be here with us.

Sign our open letter to tell Councillor Barry Lewis and the Conservatives running Derbyshire County Council.
