  • 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

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. » Less
