COVID-19 & Changes to our Services

South Derbyshire CVS premises are currently closed to the public and visitors, and staff are working from home.

We are taking referrals for our Safer Homes service but whilst we are in lockdown home visits are suspended. We have been operating a near normal service since July but prioritising police and partner referrals rather than taking self-referrals. Referrals can be made to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Safer Homes South Derbyshire

What is Safer Homes South Derbyshire?

Safer Homes is working to improve security in the homes of elderly and vulnerable people.  The scheme works by giving advice on crime prevention and home security. In some cases we are able to install additional door and window locks and other appropriate equipment free of charge.

The scheme has been set up by the Safer South Derbyshire Partnership, which is operated on a day-to-day basis by South Derbyshire CVS.

Who can make referrals?

Referrals for the scheme can come from any of the following:

  • Social Services - Adult Services
  • South Derbyshire District Council
  • Derbyshire Police
  • South Derbyshire Primary Care Trust
  • Housing Associations
  • Citizens' Advice
  • South Derbyshire CVS
  • We now also accept self-referrals
