In this challenging time it is a source of huge comfort and hope that so many people in Mid Derbyshire are forming volunteer groups to support vulnerable people in our communities. I will keep posting a list detailing community groups should you either wish to volunteer or request help if vulnerable and housebound.

Disclaimer: Whilst I'm very keen to spread the positive news about community groups, both for volunteers and the vulnerable, I am only able to carry out a small amount of due diligence on these groups given I and my staff are following the lockdown guidance. I can't be held responsible for checking that each group is bona fide, and coheres with any Government guidance as to safeguarding and Coronavirus guidance.
