Advance Notice of Summer Events

Meet the Funder

A heads up that we are planning for a Funding Fair in Matlock on Friday 14th June

This will be our first marketplace event for a number of years and we are really hoping plenty of Dales community groups will join us.

Confirmed funders are: –

  • Foundation Derbyshire
  • National Lottery Community Fund
  • Severn Trent
  • Heritage Lottery
  • Local Projects (Derbyshire Dales District Council)
  • Active Derbyshire

We will have a stall ourselves with detail of the funds that we manage – the Better Derbyshire Dales Fund and the UKSPF (Community Resilience).

If you would like to express your interest in attending, please email and will keep you informed directly.

Policies for Small Groups

Very often we are asked for advice on policies at the CVS, particularly if a group is applying for a grant, and the application form asks for a number of policies.

We are planning to hold an event over the summer where you can bring your policy to work on and review with CVS staff.

Initially we will be looking at safeguarding policies, following on from our training session in April. If you are interested in finding out more please contact Polly Yates by calling 01629 812154 press 1 or emailing
