COVID 19 (CORONAVIRUS) - Changes to our Services

Vulnerable people who are self isolating and who don’t have any family or friends locally, can now register for help via the Derbyshire Community Response Unit – they will then refer in to local services. Register online at www.derbyshire. gov.uk/communityresponse or by telephoning 01629 535091 (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, Saturday 9am to 1pm).

Anyone who has a health condition that puts them in the high risk group can register for priority help if they don’t have anyone to support them. You should have had a letter telling you how to do this – if you haven’t but think you may be eligible, find out more at https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus-extremely-vulnerable or call the government helpline on 0800 0288327.
