Changes to our Services

Due to the social distancing measures introduced by the Government, South Derbyshire CVS premises are currently closed to the public and visitors, and staff are working from home. All our group activities and most community based face to face services have stopped for the time being.

South Derbyshire CVS and the Derbyshire Home From Hospital Support Service are continuing to support vulnerable individuals who are self-isolating and who don’t have any family or friends who can help, with essential food shopping, collecting medication, and  telephone befriending/welfare calls. We can also tell you about other services which may be able to support you. If you have not used our services before you should first register for help via the Derbyshire Community Response Unit.  Register online at or by telephoning 01629 535091 (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, Saturday 9am to 1pm). They will take some basic information and then pass your details on to us.
