by Linda Philo

Rural Action Derbyshire logo

Matlock based charity Rural Action Derbyshire (RAD) has set up a Rural Hardship Support Fund to help people in rural areas of Derbyshire who are suffering extreme hardship as a result of the Covid-19
pandemic.

This has been possible thanks to an award of £2,000 from The Prince’s Countryside Fund. Rural Action Derbyshire has also been receiving some donations through their website, which is also going toward this fund.

Applications to the Hardship Fund is by referral (see below for the list of referral organisations) and individuals will need to meet the criteria to qualify.

The fund will provide regular food parcels and assistance with some critical household expenses. People will also be able to access information on other support available to them relative to their specific needs. If anyone would like to make a donation to help support the Rural Hardship Fund please go to the Rural Action Derbyshire website and just click on the orange ‘Donate’ button. Any donation, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated.

For further information please email info@ruralactionderbyshire.org.uk or go the the RAD website

Application is by referral from any of the following:

 Derbyshire Rural Chaplaincy team
 Farming Community Network (FCN)
 Farming Life Centre (FLC)
 Feeding Derbyshire Food Banks or Community Café
 Citizen’s Advice

Criteria for support:
 In severe financial hardship (unable to pay for basic necessities such as food, household bills, rent etc)
 Unable to access other support such as government schemes or waiting for payment from such schemes
 In severe emotional distress or poor mental health, anxious, lonely, depressed, and with no current treatment plan or referral to mental health services
 Living or working in a rural area of Derbyshire
 We are particularly targeting people associated with the farming industry including farmers and workers in agriculture, horticulture, forestry and countryside services who have been adversely
affected by Covid-19, and people living in isolated rural communities
