A GOVERNMENT minister has praised a Belper youth project for its innovative approach.
Nick Hurd, minister for civil society, visited the Drop Inn as part of a tour of Derbyshire in which he also visited the Whitworth Hospital, in Darley Dale, and the County Offices, Matlock.
After going for a tour of the Derwent Street facility and speaking to some of its volunteers, Mr Hurd said he was impressed with the way it was run.
“I think it’s a fantastic place,” he said.
“What I love about it is it’s so clearly being led by young people.”
