Community Response Unit

DCC have launched a Community Response Unit for members of the community that require assistance and don't have friends or family able to help or those that wish to volunteer.

High Peak CVS have also been trying to collate the numerous services/community groups/initiatives that are available to people during the COVID-19 situation so that we can all easily support and refer as appropriate. This is by no means an easy task, they have put together information on their website for public information

We've created a map for people to use which shows the nearest support group to your address. Simply put your address in the box and select it from the list. Once you do this it will automatically show you the three closest groups to your location.

If you need help with this please call 0345 129 7777.
