British Red Cross volunteers will be at the hub, working in partnership with Derbyshire County Council and High Peak Borough Council.

Kayleigh Mosley, emergency response officer for the British Red Cross in Derbyshire, said: Our volunteers will be providing emotional support to anyone who needs it and who is returning home.

“We will also be signposting people to other organisations who can provide practical assistance to support them.”
