Derbyshire County Council have made a fund of £20,000 available to help residents and businesses affected by flooding over the past few days.

A number of homes and businesses in Derbyshire were affected following heavy rain which fell over the weekend and into Monday, closing some roads and causing local disruption.

We have reinstated our Derbyshire Floods Hardship Funds for residents and businesses, which were first established following floods in 2019.

Residents directly affected by flooding, where water has entered their homes, can access financial help of up to £104 via a fast-track application process.

Businesses of 50 employees or less whose premises were flooded will be eligible to apply for a one-off payment of £500.

The initial pot of £20,000 could be extended if needed. Areas affected and eligible will be listed online.

Derbyshire County Council Leader Councillor Barry Lewis said:

“Residents and businesses are already facing a number of financial challenges and if they are affected by the recent flooding we know this will be devastating and could have a huge impact on them.

“We realise the importance of acting immediately to help where we can, which is why we are offering this support which is available now.”
