A Rural Hardship Fund has been launched by Rural Action Derbyshire. The fund provides one-off small grants of up £250 to people in rural areas who have suffered hardship because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The grants are provided to improve the health and well-being of the rural community in cases where circumstances have led or are leading to a significant deterioration in an individual’s health and well-being.

Derbyshire is a large rural county, with lots of small towns and villages with rural peripheries. The Hardship Fund does not exclude partner referrals for residents living in the small and medium sized Derbyshire towns and villages, but does exclude the larger urban areas of Chesterfield and Derby City. However, they are particularly interested to hear from people who are living and working in isolated rural locations and have little support.

They are happy to take referrals from the following agencies/partners. This list is not exhaustive, so if you are working with someone who needs some financial support please get in touch with Rural Action Derbyshire. Please be aware, they are not able to accept self-referrals.

Citizen’s Advice
A Derbyshire Food Bank, Community Café, School Holiday Club or Community Pantry.
Derbyshire Rural Chaplaincy
Farming Life Centre
The Farming Community Network
Social Prescribers
For further information or to apply visit the Rural Action Derbyshire website.
