Having a chance to talk to someone who is qualified to help can make all the difference.

STAND TO is an alcohol service dedicated to Derbyshire’s Ex-Forces community. We cover the whole of Derbyshire. At STAND TO our dedicated, experienced and highly trained staff, volunteers and peer mentors (most of whom themselves are ex- forces), have a particular awareness of the issues veterans and their families may experience. We also understand some of the challenges individuals may face in admitting alcohol is a problem and the conflict often felt in asking for support. Get in touch for an informal chat.
We aim to support and help veterans who have issues with drug, alcohol and/or mental health. It hopes to provide this help using 'Stand To' experience and integral network, focusing on an individual’s needs and circumstances, the "One size fits all" approach is rarely the answer to a veteran’s needs. The group meets regularly in Chesterfield and Clay Cross, but supports members across Derbyshire.
Anyone who lives, works or studies in Derbyshire, or is visiting the county, is welcome to use our branch libraries and mobile libraries. We offer books, CDs, audio books and DVDs for loan.

Healthwatch Derbyshire is an independent voice for the people of Derbyshire. We’re here to listen to the experiences of Derbyshire residents and give them a stronger say in influencing how local health and social care services are provided. We listen to what people have to say about their experiences of using health and social care services and feed this information through to those responsible for providing the services
Time Swap is an initiative that encourages local communities to help each other by sharing time and talents. As a member you can earn 'time' by doing things in your community that you enjoy, or are good at, to help other people. You can then spend that time on getting help from other people with something that you find difficult or someone in your community could teach you a new skill.
