Better Derbyshire Dales Fund

The Better Derbyshire Dales Fund will support organisations or specific projects that aim to develop or strengthen communities and/or people’s health and well-being. We are also interested in supporting less popular causes and work that supports disadvantaged and marginalised sections of the community. There is a capital strand that will support village halls, community centres and sports clubs with costs towards improving facilities for their community.

The Gas Safety Charity is running a free, interactive half-day workshop to help organisations become more aware of the sources, signs and symptoms of Carbon Monoxide poisoning.

Open to public bodies, charities and private care agencies, the training will introduce you to the
signs and symptoms of CO poisoning. This includes the numerous health risks associated with
frequent, low-level exposure to this odourless, invisible and toxic gas. For example, the potential increased risk of falls and signs of dementia.
