Communities

At Erewash Borough Council, we are committed to developing a greater understanding and awareness of the diversity of our residents and visitors to the borough.

  • The 2011 Census indicates the black minority ethnic community population accounts for 3% of the total Erewash population.
  • Residents, visitors and staff may follow different religions and beliefs and many of our residents have stated that they do not follow any religion. 

We recognise that there are many faiths followed within the borough and we encourage readers to familiarise themselves with these.  There are many websites which provide details about different days that people of various faiths celebrate, including the BBC which produces a calendar of events and festivals.

  • Erewash has a population of approximately 112,100. It is economically and socially diverse with rural areas serviced by market towns, as well as larger urban centres.

If you are living with dementia, or are a carer of someone living with dementia and live in the Erewash area we can alert other council services about this, so that they tailor the delivery of their service to take the condition into account.  Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Derbyshire has a vast range of community groups, support and social groups.  The Community Directory Derbyshire is updated by a range of partners to ensure that information is up to date.   Find a community or special interest group near you.

Migrant Workers

Many migrant workers work in the UK legally and contribute to the economy and employment market, filling gaps in skills we need, for example the NHS has expressed concern about staff shortages if they can not recruit nurses from abroad.  Many workers contribute to the economy and add to the culture and diversity of Derbyshire. 

Further information on migrant workers can be found here [67KB]

Language Line

We subscribe to the services provided by Language Line. This is an external service providing language translation services either on the telephone, by post, or email. Further help can be found on the  Language Line web pages.

We plan to review the ways we make our information and services accessible, contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.:

  • if you have experienced problems with accessing information we provide,
  • if you have examples of how other organisations have provided information or services in a way that you have felt were helpful.

Equality Monitoring

We actively seek out who uses our services and establish the make-up of our customer by Equality Monitoring. This is accomplished by using a standard set of questions that once the results are analysed can be compared to our community profile to ensure our services are accessible and are being used by all.

Consultation

At Erewash we actively ask for feedback from our customers on how we are doing and if we are delivering services to the standard that is expected. This Consultation will form the basis for many of our decisions.

Safer Derbyshire

All of us want to keep our homes safe and secure.

Safer Derbyshire have produced a DVD to improve the safety and security of Derbyshire residents.  It’s aimed at people who are British Sign Language (BSL) users or hearing impaired, or who currently have limited access to community safety information.  Information includes definitions of crime and anti-social behaviour, contact details for reporting crime and anti-social behaviour and sign posting to help lines and other agencies for further support.

In 2011 Victim Support launched a new project to find out more about the issues affecting local victims and witnesses of crime.
