Erewash Voluntary Action is leading the Connect Erewash project on behalf of Derbyshire County Council Public Health.

Connect Erewash is a project to reduce isolation and loneliness, and to work with communities and groups to identify activities to help improve or reduce isolation in communities. 

We would like to find out how you connect with other people, barriers you experience and if you would like to get more involved in your community.

Please complete the Connect Erewash questionnaire using the online link to the survey. The questionnaire is short and will only take a few minutes to complete.  All completed questionnaires will be entered into a prize draw for a £25 supermarket voucher.

If you would like a copy of the questionnaire emailed or sent in the post, contact Lee Tivey at Erewash Voluntary Action email

Connect Erewash contributes to the Community Wellness approach ensuring people live happy and healthy lives and know where to get help when required. Four Erewash Community Networks have been established in Sawley, Kirk Hallam, Petersham and Cotmanhay.

We are pleased to say that our new reception area is now open. When you arrive at our main offices you will notice a new entrance area. This has been developed to make sure that there is someone there to greet people when they arrive. We still have some work to carry out such as a new concrete area outside the door, new signage and automatic door sensors for easy access.


The new entrance is open from 9am - 3.30pm. Please use the old door after 3.30pm for entrance & exit.

We hope that you like the new area, please let us know what you


It is with great excitement we announce that Derbyshire Mental Health Forum is now an official part of Erewash Voluntary Action.


We have worked in partnership Derbyshire Mental Health Forum over many years on mental health projects. Our two charities share the same ethos and ideals as to how people deserve to be treated fairly in society. The staff from the forum are now at our headquarters in Long Eaton.


We have been working closely with Derbyshire Mental Health Forum over the last few months to enable the merger to take place. This merger will ensure we build on our joint delivery of successful mental health projects in Derby and Derbyshire, enabling us to support the mental health voluntary sector to have a voice and role in mental health service delivery.


If you would like any further information on our future plans please contact or call 0115 9466740
