Community Action Derby

Cost of Living Multi-agency group

To help people with the rising cost of living, the Cost of Living multi-agency group, led by Community Action Derby, has created an online hub with advice and support, on dealing with housing payments, bills and debts plus help with accessing food, clothing etc

The new hub has been created to offer as much advice as possible to those in Derby who may need it during this time. A phone number has also been launched, to support those who would like to access free advice – telephone 01332 346266 Monday to Friday between 9:30am and 4pm to speak to a member of the Community Action Derby team.


We will work with you and your circle of support, to plan your inclusion support and individual study programme to help you reach your outcomes and personal goals.

As the popularity of vaping increases we would like to remind all of the College expectations around this;

  1. Vaping is only permitted in the designated smoking areas on college sites. Students vaping in non-permitted outdoor areas will have their student number recorded and will face further disciplinary action with their Curriculum Manager.
  2. Vaping inside any of the college buildings is a breach of health and safety and will result in a parental meeting and a Final Written Warning to be issued.
  3. Students are encouraged not to share any vapes due to potential health risks. College will support any student to stop smoking vapes or cigarettes, please get in touch with the welfare team.
