We’re always looking for dedicated volunteers.

If you’d like the chance to be a part of this exciting project and help make DCR the first choice for the sound of Derby then we’d love to hear from you!

Covid-19 Advice

The most important thing we can do, in fighting coronavirus, is stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives.

When we reduce contact with other people, we will reduce the spread of the infection.

Every person in the UK must comply with the new measures, which came into effect on Monday 23 March 2020.

The relevant authorities, including the police, have been given the powers to enforce them.

Including through fines and dispersing gatherings.

The government will look again at these measures after three weeks, and relax them if the evidence shows this is possible.

We are committed to serving the community. Find out more about low cost advertising on our website.
