Champions also heard about a new community innovation centre which is set to open in three of the incubation units at the St Helena’s Campus, creating 4 new jobs. This is the result of almost £487,000 of Lottery funding which has been awarded to Derbyshire Voluntary Action (DVA) to fund COMMuniTY Chesterfield, which aims to raise aspirations in the area, as well as to help local people live healthier lives. DVA will be working in partnership with the University’s Health and Social Care department.
