News! Heating or Eating

As fuel bills rise and household incomes fall, it's a sad fact that some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in Derbyshire will be facing the choice of 'heating or eating' this winter. As part of a campaign that seeks to tackle the impact of fuel poverty, Advice Derbyshire have developed an online database of food banks and schemes operating across Derbyshire.

The resource allows users, and in particular front line workers, to search for their nearest scheme by postcode, which will provide a detailed map and information about any available services. In the New Year Advice Derbyshire will extend this work to include the collection and distribution of food donations, and are eager to work with partners to identify and address any gaps in provision. To access the resource click here, and please do let others know it is there.
