Welcome to Derbyshire Carers Association

Derbyshire Carers Association recognise that the responsibility of caring for someone who cannot manage at home without help often places great physical and emotional strain upon the Carer. Whether you care for someone for a few hours a week or for 24 hours a day, we can offer you a wide range of confidential and independent services, helping you to care.

Help us to Help Carers

Derbyshire Carers Association is a non-profit charity therefore we rely on donations from the public in order to carry out our work.

Derbyshire Carers Association - About Us

There are over 120,000 people providing unpaid care for loved ones in Derbyshire.


    Established in 1988, Derbyshire Carers Association supports carers who look after a friend or family member who, due to illness, disability, mental health problems or an addiction cannot cope without their help and support.

    Many people who are supporting someone do not see themselves as a ‘carer’ but as relatives or friends. Caring for others can be complex and demanding,  physically taxing and mentally draining.

    Carers often become so focused on the person they care for that they forget to look after themselves. To keep going it is essential that carers look after their own health and well-being and that’s when Derbyshire Carers Association can help.
