From November, Derbyshire Dales CVS will be hosting a new online social group called ‘Good Company Café’, which is aimed at anyone who might feel lonely and isolated during the Winter months, especially with this year sadly having less opportunities for people to meet and socialise with others.

You may know someone (maybe a person who usually attends your club or group) who would like to see a friendly face and make connections with local people in the Derbyshire Dales. Our popular DDCVS Online Coffee Mornings will still be happening regularly too, and Good Company Café is aimed more at the wider community, rather than those involved with the CVS or voluntary groups in the Derbyshire Dales.

  • Are you under 18?
  • Want to meet and share ideas with other young people?
  • Have your say and get involved in the community?

Sue Heyes, fund officer for the Severn Trent Community Fund, will take you through the Community Fund, the aims and criteria, what it will support and how to apply. The fund has been designed to support the wellbeing of communities in the Severn Trent region and it seeks to fund projects that link to three key elements of community wellbeing – People, Place and Environment – with favourability shown to projects that ideally lie within a ‘sweet spot’ that incorporates all three.
