Launch of the Community Response Unit

We've launched our Community Response Unit which has begun taking requests for help from members of the community who don't have friends or family able to support them.

Volunteers from over 200 different organisations will be able to help with shopping, fetching prescriptions or offering a befriending service.

Help is available for people across the county if they are:

  • Self-isolating because either themselves or a member of the household is at risk
  • Struggling to meet basic needs because of financial, social or health restrictions
  • Pregnant
  • Have underlying health conditions
  • Aged 70 or over

You may know someone in your community or through the course of your work who needs support. Please direct them to www.derbyshire.gov.uk/gethelp or ask them to call 01629 535091.

Thanks to all our staff who have offered to help this massive community effort. If you'd like to offer practical help as a volunteer you can do this by registering online www.derbyshire.gov.uk/givehelp and please ensure you complete the volunteer and skills survey which will enable us to identify those who could offer help as part of their role.
