Salcare Supporting former Leaderflush Employees
Politicians come to see the work
Heanor based charity Salcare has been stepping in to help those who have lost their jobs recently from door manufacturer Leaderflush Shapland at nearby Langley Mill.
The centre, in Ray Street, which describes itself as a ‘one-stop-shop’ providing support for people in need, has been busy doing all that’s possible for those affected by the redundancies. Local churches are involved with the running of the project. Demand for their food bank has increased as families with nowhere else to turn came looking for help.
As a result, its work came to the attention of politicians recently, including Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn MP and Derbyshire County Councillor Anne Western, who both visited the centre on 11th February. They discussed the situation with the Salcare team as part of a tour of the area investigating the impact of the door manufacturer’s closure.
