In 2021 funding of £100K through Public Health Derbyshire County Council was allocated to each district in Derbyshire to support positive emotional well-being for children and young people through a community asset-based approach.  Public Health is working with community partners, including Derbyshire Dales CVS to do this work.
As part of this programme in the Derbyshire Dales, a small grants scheme is being launched. Voluntary and Community Sector organisations, and Parish Councils can apply for up to £2,000 to fund existing work or for a new project that will support emotional wellbeing for children and young people. The funding can support both capital and revenue costs.

In 2021 the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust launched their Derwent connections project, a community focused project based in the Derbyshire Derwent River catchment. Working with individuals and community groups across Derbyshire, the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust are developing woodland creation and natural flood management projects throughout the county to help alleviate the risks of flooding.
The Derbyshire Wildlife Trust would like to support community groups, and individuals in taking actions to help alleviate flooding around the Derwent River catchment. There are a number of ways the Trust can support and work with you, from offering support, education materials and toolkits to attending events and providing training on natural flood management and woodland creation. This can happen through a number of activities including tree planting, dam creation, hedgerow development, all of which help to slow the flow of water into the Derwent River.
If you would like to discuss how you could work with the Derbyshire wildlife trust on natural flood management and Woodland creation in your area please contact George Jones, Wilder Communities Officer via email at – gjones@derbyshirewildlifetrust.co.uk

Grants of up to £100,000 for project which will make significant change and improvements for Armed Forces communities where there are hidden or compelling needs.
The programme focuses on specific groups of people within Armed Forces communities, rather than more general approaches. It is important that the people who will benefit from the project
have been able to shape how it will be delivered.
The project that you are seeking funding for will need to fit within four core funding themes. Your project could cover more than one of these themes:
• Non-core healthcare services for veterans.
• Removing barriers to family life.
• Extra support, both in and after Service, for those that need help
• Measures to integrate military and civilian communities and allow the Armed Forces community to participate as citizens.
