The Commissioner held a Meet With Your Commissioner event for the North East Derbyshire area on the 21st July 2020.
Previous events around the county were held in the community but due to the current pandemic this was held completely online. Attendees were still presented with all the relevant information as if this meeting was held in the community.
The Commissioner outlined the concerns raised in your local area following the completion of his tour of Derbyshire where he visited 383 towns, villages and neighbourhoods. He then explained the steps taken to address these matters.
The full meeting is available to view here https://youtu.be/t65EDaQ5qD0

All money raised is to be shared between local groups and the church.
Its also a celebration of sorts, with local people helping deliver 650 SNAG boxes, providing nearly 2000 meals in Shirebrook–since lockdown back in March this year - truly amazing stuff!!

Leadership Skills Training
Join this short session to think about your leadership skills and how to maximise your strengths as a leader. Improve your confidence to inspire those around you and understand what value you bring to any situation. Develop your best qualities and take home some top tips on how to share your vision with those around you.
Relationship Mapping Training
Relationship mapping is a good way to evaluate the organisations and individuals within and around your organisation who can bring huge benefits to the work that you are doing. At this short session, learn a simple way to analyse and evaluate your relationships and take home ideas and tools to improve them in the future.
Both these courses will be delivered by Jenny from ‘Community Chesterfield’. Jenny has over fifteen years working in the third sector in key management and relationship building roles, for both small and large organisations including ‘Pathways to Health’ ‘British Red Cross’ and ‘National Trust’. In that time she has prioritised working collaboratively as a leader with disparate stakeholders. Over the past five years she has also worked as a trainer, delivering training to volunteers, staff at both a local and regional level.
