Residents who are facing extreme financial difficulties and struggling to buy food in Bolsover and South Normanton are being supported by Derbyshire County Council in the lead up to ‘Blue Monday’.

The council is stepping up its continuing work to support Derbyshire’s food bank network ahead of 20th January – nationally recognised as the date many people rely on support as they struggle with the deadline for settling post-Christmas bills before they have been paid.

It is part of the authority’s wider commitment to tackling poverty, supporting people on low incomes, reducing health inequalities and protecting the country’s most vulnerable residents.
