We were very sorry to hear of Councillor Lewis Rose’s passing earlier this year.
The longest serving councillor on Derbyshire Dales District Council, Councillor Rose OBE was the last founder Member of the authority still serving, dating back to Local Government organisation in the early 1970s. He was Leader of the Conservative group for 45 years until 2019.
At the CVS we had worked with Cllr Rose on the Peak Leader grants panel where he was Chair for a number of years, as well as during our time supporting the Wirksworth swimming pool move from local authority to independence.
He was very pleasant, and professional to work with, and his contribution to the Derbyshire Dales community will be very much missed.
You can read his full obituary on the Derbyshire Dales District Council website.
You may remember that in the last newsletter we included an ‘easy-read’ newsletter from NHS England.
This went some way to explain the services from the NHS and the new Integrated Care Systems.
This time there are three other documents that you can download as PDFs which explain the History, the Vision and the Process.
Karen Lloyd from Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust will be giving a talk at the Derbyshire Dialogue on 23rd Feb, see – https://derbyshireinvolvement.co.uk/derb ...  as well as at our Coffee Morning on 24th March, if you have any questions.
“If I had started this piece with – Rural Domestic Abuse Awareness – how many of you would have thought ‘This isn’t relevant to me, domestic abuse doesn’t happen in my village’,” says Emily Brailsford of the Willow Project at Rural Action Derbyshire.
“But domestic abuse doesn’t just affect unemployed people who live in towns and cities. It can happen to anyone, anywhere. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men will experience domestic abuse at some point in their life. That means that when you go to market, or the pub or to a WI meeting or other group, it is more than likely that someone there is affected by domestic abuse.
Domestic abuse isn’t always about a black eye or a split lip; coercion and control is also a crime. In 2015 a law came into effect which includes coercion and control. The Government definition of Coercive behaviour is “an act or a pattern of acts of assault, threats, humiliation and intimidation or other abuse that is used to harm, punish, or frighten their victim”.
So, whilst you might not know of anyone who is hitting their partner, do you know of anyone who is isolating their partner from family and friends? Or anyone who controls where their partner can and can’t go and monitors every minute of their day?
The Willow Project delivers free training to help you spot the signs of abuse.
The training, which is free to anyone living or working in Derbyshire (the cost is £35+VAT for those who live outside of Derbyshire), will help you become more aware of signs of abuse and how to support and signpost a victim.
If you would like to attend the training, please visit https://www.ruralactionderbyshire.org.uk ...
Or for further information please email e.brailsford@ruralactionderbyshire.org.uk or call 07594 088 858
Please remember if you are in danger call 999.
On 1 December the NHS Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group launched a consultation on Mental Health Services for Older People.
This consultation is asking local people to share their views on proposals to relocate two services for older people with mental health conditions to new facilities in the county. 
The proposal is that services move from Pleasley Ward at the Hartington Unit in Chesterfield, to Walton Hospital in Chesterfield and Ward 1 at London Road Community Hospital Derby to Tissington House at Kingsway Hospital in Derby.
Information can be found on https://www.derbyshirehealthcareft.nhs.u ... which includes a link to an online survey and other ways to feedback.
The consultation will run until 1 February so there is still time to give your comments.
If you have any questions or would like to feedback in another way, please contact ddccg.enquiries@nhs.net
