Our online Community Forums are open to any volunteers in South Derbyshire who are organising and/or coordinating COVID-19 support in their local community or neighbourhood. They offer a chance to chat to each other & our community workers, to share best practice and good ideas as well as any problems or gripes, and to catch up on what's happening in the local area.

On Thursday 16 July, the forum will focus on befriending and learning from the Covid-19 response at CVS and in our neighbourhoods.

For more information / to book visit: Tickets will be available until 2pm on 15 July.

Help us improve our online Community Forums

We have created a short survey to gather feedback on our online Community Forums. You do not have to have attended a forum to take part. As well as anyone that has attended, we would also like to hear from those that would like to attend but have not, for whatever reason. There are 11 questions, all optional and it should only take around 5-10 minutes to complete.

Visit: Thank you!
