News & Events

Active Derbyshire and Active Nottinghamshire are holding a joint event this Spring to highlight some great insight into what’s happening in the area to get more people with disabilities to be more active.

The free event, to be held at the New Art Exchange in Nottingham will take place on Wednesday 20 March 2019.

They are currently pulling the content of the conference together but it will be around these key areas:

Music for All

The mission of the Music for All charity is to make more musicians and to enable and inspire more people to discover the mental and physical benefits that playing a musical instrument can bring.

The charity has two grant streams; one for individuals interested in learning an instrument and one for groups that would like to bring music to a community.

Grants for Community Safety Projects

The panel dealing with the Derbyshire County Council Action Grants has had many applications for funding in the categories Youth Activity, Community Activity, Physical Activity and Sport, but very few in the category Community Safety.

They would be very pleased to receive applications related to community safety, but please note that things like applications for defibrillators do not constitute community safety – the emphasis on this strand is related to reducing crime, fear of crime and tackling anti-social behaviour.

Better Derbyshire Dales Fund

This grant-scheme makes awards to support the work of new or existing community groups or organisations that are working in the Derbyshire Dales and are in need of capital or revenue funding.

The fund is made up of money from Derbyshire Dales District Council, North Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group and Derbyshire County Council Public Health.
