Join in with the Big Conversation

Due to cuts in government funding and rising costs of providing services, the Council has to save £69 million over the next three years. It’s unlikely we’ll be able to afford to provide all our current services running in every home, organisation and business across Derby.

To try and overcome these challenges we think it’s important to get you, the people of Derby, actively involved and having your say. We’re therefore launching a consultation called the Big Conversation as our way to get everyone talking. This is a partnership between public, private, voluntary and faith organisations as well as our many diverse communities.

We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to influence these decisions by inviting you to tell us which services are the most important to you, your family and your community.

To do this we’re giving you the opportunity to understand where the Council currently spends its money and decide where you think less should be spent to save £69 million.

We encourage everyone to have their say on the future of the Council and would welcome your views and feedback at any stage as we continue our Big Conversation – please make your views count.

Head to the Your Money Your Views budget simulator and find out more about the events we will be holding over the next six months. For more information on this please email
