In response to COVID 19, if you have a medical condition which makes you extremely vulnerable to corona virus, the government has set up a service to offer support.
News & Events
A quick update from us this week, you’ll see we have put a few new resources on the website as well as updating last week’s editions; we hope they will be helpful to you.
There’s a Dales Directory, a Guide to setting up a COVID 19 Support Group, a list of COVID 19 Mutual Aid groups in Derbyshire, a telephone helplines list, a guide to food shopping, and a list of free resources.
Derbyshire Dales residents can receive free email updates:
Anyone struggling to make normal payments to us such as Council Tax should email DDDC: firstname.lastname@example.org or, during office hours, phone 01629 761222
Council Tax Support scheme provides financial support to households with low incomes and we would encourage those who wish to make a claim to do so as soon as possible and we’ll be prioritising these claims to get support to eligible households as soon as we can.
Tesco Bags of Help is responding to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis by setting up a new short-term fund to support local communities. Due to the need to respond quickly to the emergency we have created a streamlined application process and payment process to make it easier to get funds distributed quickly. If your application is successful the fund will provide a single payment award of £500 to organisations who are supporting vulnerable groups. The programme is set up to support organisational need in this time of crisis rather than fund specific projects.
