Community Chesterfield

Community Chesterfield is an innovative, collaborative partnership between Derbyshire Voluntary Action and the University of Derby. Based at the St Helena Campus, Chesterfield, we work to bring Chesterfield’s community organisations and the University together to strengthen the local health and social care sector. The project is community-led and is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.

Collaborations have included events such as a coproduction session looking at a community shared space in Chesterfield,  shared learning sessions and a  busy training programme, student placements, research and volunteering.
