'Shop but Can't Drop?' Appeal


As our usual venues have had to shut their doors we have taken the difficult decision to close our face to face Jubilee clinics for the foreseeable future.

WE ARE STILL OPEN! We will continue to support our current clients, and anyone who needs any debt and benefits advice, via the phone and email.

Following an initial period from the end of March to the middle of June our Safe Space service was moved to the Holiday Inn Express on Pride Park in a collaboration with Derby City Council, the OPCC and other agencies. This service has now moved into our new purpose built facility in DCM's hub building on Normanton Road.

More information can be found on our Safe Space page.


With the government easing lockdown restrictions on 4th July to allow pubs, bars and restaurants to reopen we are now able to resume our Street Pastor patrols.  At present we are operating from 9pm to 1am on a Friday and Saturday to reflect the reduced level of activity currently in the Night Time Economy.


Tim Pawson has continued to work with other organisations across the city to produce on-line content for parents who are home schooling.

All our other services have been suspended until further notice. 

Our statement for volunteers and staff (17-3-2020) can be found here.
