News: How Can We Help You Help Others?

The community of High Peak has come together once again to help those that need it the most during this COVID-19 pandemic and we’re fully aware of the pressure this is putting on our local community groups, volunteers and services.

your-community-needs-youAt High Peak CVS we want to help these groups as much as possible as they are essential to the community, so if your group needs any particular help please do let us know so we can share and try to help you help others. 

This could include:

  • Food Banks short on particular items, 
  • a group looking for more volunteers, 
  • simply promoting your service to the wider community
  • in desperate need for practical resources, 

Please do get in touch and we will do our best to help.

Please send us any information to: hello@highpeakcvs.org.uk and/or tag us in your Facebook and Twitter posts and we’ll get this shared.

Once again thank you for your help and support during this difficult period. YOU are the key to supporting and protecting those most vulnerable across the High Peak.

News: Domestic Abuse

Where to get help during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

If you’re already living with domestic abuse, then the restrictions put in place while the government tries to slow the spread of the virus have probably left you fearful of being isolated in the house with your abuser and as if there is nowhere to go for help.

Remember that you can still call 999 if you or someone else is in danger.

While some domestic abuse support services are not able to offer face to face meetings at this time, there is still help and advice available online and over the phone. These local and national organisations are working hard to ensure they can still support you.

Derby City Domestic Abuse Service – 0800 085 3481

Derbyshire Domestic Abuse Service – 0800 019 8668

National Domestic Abuse Helpline – 0808 200 0247
