We Need Your Help!

Let High Peak CVS know if you provide support services for the local community and are not yet listed on our Coronavirus Support Directory.  

With the current COVID-19 pandemic having a huge effect on everyone’s way of life it is vital we all come together to support each other and ensure that everyone is safe during this period.

As you may be aware, Derbyshire County Council have established the Community Response Unit (CRU) to respond to the growing needs of the local community. Those that need additional support during this period of isolation. For more information about the CRU and to register your details follow the link below:

derbyshire.gov.uk/social-health/health-and-wellbeing/health-protection/disease-control/coronavirus/community-response-unit/if-you-need-help/if-you-need-help.aspx 

As part of the High Peak CVS commitment to supporting the local community we have agreed to act as the link between the CRU, those that need support and the services and organisations that are working hard to meet the needs. This is where we need your help. In order to ensure that every single person gets the help they need we are putting together a comprehensive list of local services and community groups that are offering their time, expertise and resources to support the most vulnerable across the High Peak. The link for this database is here:

highpeakcvs.org.uk/directory.asp 

We are already receiving a high number of requests for support and we need to ensure that we have all the relevant information and contact details available to refer people as quickly as possible. So, we are asking any organisation or group that is offering support during this time to check the directory and if your details aren’t on there to get in touch and we can get you on there. All we need is:

  • Contact Name and contact details
  • The Area your group covers
  • What services you offer

Please do get in touch and let us know what you’re up to. Whether you’re a local business offering delivery of essentials or a group of volunteers that have offered to help with shopping. Let us know and we can add you to this essential list of amazing people that are doing their best to help those that need it the most. 

On behalf of High Peak CVS, Derbyshire County Council and everyone involved, thank you so much for your support. Together we can beat this.

To get in touch or to update your details on the directory please contact Donna Wren at donna@highpeakcvs.org.uk or call 01663 735350.
