Derbyshire Police and Crime Plan 2024-29 survey
Police and Crime Commissioner Nicolle Ndiweni has launched a consultation on the Police and Crime Plan for Derbyshire.

The Commissioner understands that to do this, the Plan needs to truly reflect the needs of communities throughout Derbyshire.

They are promoting the Home Upgrade Grant to residents of the Derbyshire Dales who may be eligible and have funding available for energy efficiency improvements for off gas homes where residents may be in fuel poverty – homes could be offered insulation, low carbon heating such as air source heat pumps, and solar panels. Each home will be assessed individually at no cost and no obligation. If you know of anyone who might qualify, please let them know. More information is on this page on DDDC’s website and in this poster which you can read or download.
