Community Chesterfield

University of Derby

Client: Derbyshire Voluntary Action

Community Chesterfield was launched in 2019. Its aim was to bring together the wealth of experience and knowledge within local communities and the voluntary organisations which support them with the resources of the University of Derby, to strengthen the community organisations, enhance students’ learning and provide opportunities for the sectors to work together and benefit from the relationships formed. To date, the project has supported communities throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, forged meaningful connections, generated impactful research projects and enriched students’ learning.
