Community Voice Update #2

It has been a busy couple of weeks for the Community Voice project and we are continuing to share key information from Public Health and Derbyshire County Council in response to COVID 19 developments.

Our network of Community Champions is beginning to develop and we held our first forum on Friday 19th February. We had good representation from across the Derbyshire Dales which is really encouraging. You can still get involved by emailing Rachel@ddcvs.org.uk and help us to support our communities by spreading COVID facts not fiction.

The forum was really useful for finding out what communities want to know and what information needs to be shared and how accessible it is for all members of the community. There was an opportunity to find out about Community Testing across Derbyshire – 1 in 3 people have symptoms but do not know they have the virus; individuals are being encouraged to visit testing centres to help keep infection rates down.

This is a two-way process and we really want to hear from you, what’s working and what’s not working in your community.

Join us at our next Community Voice Forum on Friday 5th March at 10.00am.

Find out the latest COVID updates from the local area, and give any feedback or ask questions you may have about the challenges surrounding Covid 19. To receive a zoom link for the meeting email Rachel@ddcvs.org.uk
