The centre is still closed to the General Public in keeping with Government Advise.

During the Closure, DWICA Staff has been in contact with members and offering support where possible.

For the past 4 weeks DWICA have sourcing groceries and preparing hot meals for elderly members and others who are isolated at home. We have also been providing Food Parcels to single parent families as recommended by DCC.

A very big thank you to all the volunteers; the Cooks, the Bakers, the Drivers and those doing the labelling and packaging. DWICA could not have provided this service with willing staff and volunteers – THANK YOU.

Over 75 meals per week has been provided to most of the local Neighbourhood Ward Areas i.e. Normanton, Sunnyhill, Sinfin, Allenton, Mackworth, Chaddesden  and as far as Chellaston.


We are here to support

Please note that DWICA will remain open as usual until further notice. We are still taking bookings during this time, you can contact DWICA on 01332 371529 or 07908897084. Our opening times will be as usual Monday – Friday 9:00AM – 5:00PM, If this changes we will let you know via email, letter or text.

DWICA is reviewing the situation on a daily and weekly basis and will advise you as to any changes accordingly.  

 What to do if you have symptoms

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

  • A high temperature (37.8 degrees or higher)
  • A new continuous cough
  • Shortness of breath

This will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. However, if your symptoms are getting worst after 7 days you should contact the NHS 111, your doctor or online.

You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
