This community network - Crich Area Covid-19 Mutual Aid - has come together to provide a coordinated response in Crich and South Wingfield Parishes to the measures being recommended by Government.
There are over 100 volunteers in the network ready to help the residents of Crich Parish and South Wingfield Parish. Things have been progressing at a rate of knots behind the scenes and we have already been helping residents that have been in touch through us directly.
Get help with shopping, meals, prescriptions, petcare, phone contact, post or just for a friendly chat.
There is also a lot of work going on behind the scenes on making sure we have safeguarding and data security processes and measures in place. The network aims to help people who are anxious, potentially isolated and in some cases vulnerable. We have been taking very seriously the need to put in place a safe, reliable and trustworthy voluntary network.
Thank you very much to the volunteers - we know there is a lot of work going on between neighbours, families and friends too. We are strong communities and we will all be there for each other through this crisis.
If you have any questions about any of this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has launched a new telephone based support line for local people who are experiencing increased distress or anxiety during the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
All households in our community are being encouraged to create an Easter window display to brighten the day of those passing by. It can be as simple or elaborate as you like, the idea is just to spread some happiness.
Crich Area Covid19 Mutual Aid volunteers are there to support everyone in our community.
While we have just an hour of freedom outside, you might be weighing up the best use of your time for health and fitness. If you are an outdoors person, you might find Nordic walking offers you the perfect solution. It was originally a summer training regime for cross-country skiers.
Bev Lomax, the yoga teacher who runs the very popular weekly gentle yoga sessions in Crich is preparing some 5 minute videos for the community to access free of charge.
