News: Rolls Royce Fund 2018

The Foundation Derbyshire Rolls-Royce 2018 Fund is now open for bids until early March

Every year the Foundation works alongside Rolls-Royce to develop a grant theme, responding to local needs, topics and concerns. For 2018 the theme will be:

Children and the Great Outdoors

Supporting child mental & physical health in our most disadvantaged communities

Last year the Foundation Derbyshire Rolls-Royce Fund selected the theme of Mental Health and Young People. This allowed them to award three local charities who went on to offer direct counselling services to over 125 children and young people. 

This 2018 theme builds on that work by taking a step back and looking at part of the prevention agenda, using some of the simplest, effective ways to build up mental health resilience in children throughout Derby and Derbyshire.

The Fund will harness the power of existing charities, community groups and voluntary groups already working with disadvantaged and vulnerable families. The Fund will offer an investment for projects, which will educate around the importance of green exercise and outdoor play and foster a love of the great outdoors.

A fund of £10,000 has been set aside to fund projects here in Derby and Derbyshire that can make a positive impact on local lives.

News: Derbyshire Connect Shopping Buses

Derbyshire Connect is offering a new door-to-door shopping bus service for people who are unable to use conventional buses because of mobility difficulties or because they live in areas where bus services are limited.

Every town or village will get an opportunity for a shopping trip, once a week, to local shops or a supermarket. And the good news is that these trips are now free for all Derbyshire Gold Card holders.

This new service will cover trips to shopping destinations in the Derbyshire Dales, High Peak and South Derbyshire district and borough council areas. They will be run by Ashbourne Community Transport on behalf of Derbyshire County Council. Derbyshire Connect services replace Dial-a-Bus (DAB) services previously provided by Derbyshire’s various community transport schemes.

The new Derbyshire Connect services will initially run in the same way as the old-style DAB services. They will run door-to-door picking passengers up from home and dropping them off at an agreed shopping location, advised at the time of booking. Volunteer passenger assistants can be provided if you let us know in advance, for passengers needing a bit more help.
