Support for residents and businesses affected by flooding

Published on Saturday 23 January 2021

Derbyshire County County made £100,000 available to help residents and businesses affected by recent flooding.


A number of homes and businesses in Derbyshire Dales were affected overnight after persistent rain fell on saturated ground, closing some roads and causing local disruption.

DCC have reinstated the Derbyshire Floods Hardship Fund for Residents and the Derbyshire Floods Business Hardship Fund which were established following floods in 2019.

Residents directly affected by flooding can access financial help of up to £104 via a fast track application process.

Businesses of 50 employees or less whose premises were flooded will be eligible to apply for a one-off payment of £500.

Council leader Councillor Barry Lewis said:

“We understand the impact that an event like this can have on residents and small businesses, particularly whilst managing the challenges of the pandemic.

“It is again important to react to this immediately which is why we are offering Derbyshire residents and businesses support. Having your home or business flooded is extremely distressing and we want to be able to help people who may be in financial difficulty.”

To apply for the residents' fund only, people should call Call Derbyshire on 01629 533190.

Call centre staff will be available between 8am and 6pm during the week and on Saturday morning to take information. Payments will then be processed as quickly as possible.

To apply for the fund for businesses, firms should download the application form and email it to regeneration@derbyshire.gov.uk

You can download the application form and find more information on flooding including how to report flooding, who is involved in managing flooding risk in Derbyshire and how residents can protect themselves.
