Foundation Derbyshire Funding
We are delighted to announce that we have received a Grant award from Foundation Derbyshire.
The need for this funding was highlighted by our teams at DCA. Our Support Workers identified Carer families who were finding it increasingly difficult to provide meals for themselves and their loved ones.
The funding we have been awarded is being used to offer an emergency food delivery plan to support vulnerable Carers during this difficult time.
To access the emergency food delivery plan, you have to be a registered DCA Carer and meet the set criteria detailed in the project. This service will be coordinated via our Support Team who are identifying Carers via telephone support. These Carers will then be referred to the team who have sourced links with local food providers and delivery services.
So far we have organised for 19 Carer families to receive an emergency food delivery plan.
