People needing help during the coronavirus crisis

South Derbyshire CVS, the Derbyshire Home From Hospital Support Service and a number of other local voluntary and community groups are offering support to vulnerable individuals who are self-isolating or struggling to meet their basic needs, and who don’t have any family or friends who can help.

This includes essential food shopping, collecting medication, and  telephone befriending/welfare calls. We can also tell you about other services which may be able to support you. 

Anyone who needs help should first register via the Derbyshire Community Response Unit.  Register online at  or by telephoning 01629 535091 (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, Saturday 9am to 1pm). They will take some basic information and then pass your details on to us.

South Derbyshire CVS Food Bank is still operating for people in financial difficulties, however collection of food parcels is by appointment only. Please email or telephone 07458 305316 for more information.

For any other enquiries email  or telephone 07458 304316.
