Community Leadership Scheme Grant

Huge thanks to Cllr Ruth George, Derbyshire County Councillor for the Whaley Bridge and Blackbrook Division, who has donated £250 to High Peak CVS from the members' Community Leadership Scheme.  

We are currently working to transform our IT infrastructure so that we are equipped to meet the rapidly developing needs of the High Peak Community and this grant will go a long way towards achieving our goals.

Ruth said "Iíve always supported our voluntary services and am really pleased to be able to support High Peak CVS with their IT improvement project.  I know how difficult it is for small charities to access funding to improve their services and resources but their support to the High Peak community is vital."

The members' Community Leadership Scheme allows County Councillors to support community projects in their divisions. As well as her grant to High Peak CVS, Ruth has also supported a wide range of local community groups since her election in February, a few of which are listed below.

  • Peak School PTFA
  • Furness Vale Social Club
  • Footsteps Community Cafe
  • Zink Advice
  • Chapel Girls Brigade
  • Acclimatise Whaley
  • Community Speedwatch
  • Chinley Juniors Football
  • Beardwood Natural Living
  • Furness Vale COGS
  • Chapel Good Neighbour Project
  • Local scouts, brownies and guide groups

Ruth continued "Iíve tried to help make sure youth organisations can continue this year as thereís so little for young people and the community organisations providing youth activity have really struggled through the Pandemic. I hope that these grants will make a positive difference."
