STREET Gloucestershire, a new service supporting young people aged 13 to 19 who have been affected by domestic abuse in their own teenage relationship or within their family, officially launched on Friday 13 December at Gloucester Rugby Club.
A letter detailing the outcome of HMICFRS’ re-inspection of GRFS has been published today (17 December) along with the findings of their initial inspection back in June. The letter highlights that since the full inspection, GFRS’ fire protection service has rapidly made real improvement, as a result of positive action by the service.
When it meets on 20 December, Gloucestershire County Council’s cabinet will consider a draft budget for 2020/21 totalling £468million, a net increase of £31million on 2019/20. An initial £1million Action Fund will be set up to help tackle climate change and an additional £12.9million will go towards protecting the county’s vulnerable children.
At its next meeting (Friday 20 December), the county council will share its record of action so far in cutting carbon emissions - and ask cabinet to agree a number of new initiatives to lead Gloucestershire’s response to the climate emergency.
