Update from DDCVS

We hope all is well with you and your community.

We have updated the COVID 19 Funding and Grants information on our website this week and you can download the PDF here.

We have been preparing for an Online Networking Event on Thursday 13th August; it would be great to see you there. We will have a talk from Foundation Derbyshire and Age UK Derby and Derbyshire – Strictly No Falling. If you would like to join us please email jonathan@ddcvs.org.uk

Our last Online Coffee Morning was well attended and we had some great cross-group working, with sharing of information and offers to get involved with other projects. Our next Coffee Morning will be on Thursday 27th August.

Our Five Ways to Well-being small grants programme is open for applications, with a closing date of 30th September. We will have another round of the Better Derbyshire Dales Fund this year and welcome applications from eligible voluntary groups. The next closing date is 12th November.

If you would like to find out more about the Better Derbyshire Dales Fund, the Five Ways to Well-being small grant scheme or other small grants please contact Jonathan or Sarah at DDCVS.

We have increased our office presence at Bakewell and will review this each month; at present we are not open for drop-in enquiries. We continue to work remotely for the most part; please contact us by phone or email. We can also set up a Zoom meeting if needed, or post information out, it just might take a little longer.
