Winter Pressure Single Contact Point

As we move into winter, we know that this is likely to be a particularly challenging time for some people.  
To support professionals (working or volunteering) to refer and signpost vulnerable residents to essential services and self-help advice this winter, Derbyshire County Council has opened up a Winter Pressure Single Contact Point.
– The service will run from October 2022 – March 2023.  
– It provides a single contact point for colleagues to direct enquiries, if you are not sure where to send them currently.
– The service is open to all health professionals, social care practitioners, district/borough stakeholders and voluntary sector partners – who may come across a vulnerable person this winter that needs help.
– To help manage demand – if you already know where you need to direct your enquiry, please continue using existing pathways by going directly to the appropriate service.
– Eligibility criteria applies to some services.
This service is by professional route only.
Further details can be found at On the website you will find a simple referral form, that you need to fill in to access support.
