Derbyshire County Council is working to improve the health and wellbeing of men across the county and they need your help to do so.

If you’re a man who lives or works in Derbyshire then please take a few minutes to fill in an online survey about how you feel about health and wellbeing.

It takes between 10 – 15 minutes and you could be in with a chance of winning a £25 voucher for taking part.

Home from Hospital Coordinator – High Peak

Based in Buxton, and working across the High Peak area
22.5 hours/week @ £23,953 FTE = £14,566 per annum

Connex needs someone with good listening skills, who is caring, resourceful and organised to coordinate the Home from Hospital service in the High Peak.

Linking with hospital discharge teams, adult care and other health professionals, the service helps reduce the risk of admission to hospital for vulnerable people, and helps people to return home safely on discharge from hospital. The service provides non-clinical, practical help.

In 2021 the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust launched their Derwent connections project, a community focused project based in the Derbyshire Derwent River catchment. Working with individuals and community groups across Derbyshire, the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust are developing woodland creation and natural flood management projects throughout the county to help alleviate the risks of flooding.
