COVID 19 (CORONAVIRUS) - Changes to our Services

South Derbyshire CVS premises are currently closed to the public and visitors, and most staff will work from home. All of our group activities and most community based face to face services will stop for the time being. This includes face to face Befriending, Befriending Groups and Travelling Lunch club; Active Travel and Social Car; Safer Homes and Shopmobility.

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. 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 or call the government helpline on 0800 0288327.

The Travelling Lunch Club


What does the Travelling Lunch Club provide?


The Travelling Lunch Club offers a chance to socialise with friends old and new by providing a trip out and lunch at a different venue each month. The club is open to any person over the age of 65, living in South Derbyshire who may feel lonely or isolated.

We arrange for a minibus to pick you up from your home and take you home once the meal has finished. Perfect if you are not so good on your legs! Please don't worry if you are in a wheelchair or have some other need, dietary or otherwise as we'll do our best to help.

How much will it cost?

The annual registration fee to become a Travelling Lunch Club Member is £5. Each outing costs £15 for transport to and from the venue and a 2-course meal.
