    Fundraising Success for DCA

    DCA have been tirelessly working to raise more funds to be able to put on more fun activities for the Carers we support. Recently we have been very successful in gaining some funds for different areas of support as highlighted below:-

    Bolsover Rotary Club have very kindly rewarded a grant of £500 to Bolsover Young Carers for a Chatsworth Christmas visit, this will enable the Young Carers to have a fun day out and get a break from their caring responsibilities.

    Amber Valley Soroptomists International raised £150 towards activities for our Young Carers in the Amber Valley, this will go towards putting on more activities for them during school holidays.

    Here at Derbyshire Carers we are thrilled to receive £200 from #RichmondCareHome to help fund activities for the adult Carers we support, we hope to use this to put on some more pamper days.

    The National Lottery have awarded a grant to fund a Befriending Project Worker – Rural to continue to develop the Telephone Befriending Service (for the Carers we support in rural areas & who have the greatest risk of isolation and loneliness), this job is currently being advertised on our website.

    The National Lottery also awarded us a community fund for Young Carers this will go towards preventing social isolation of Young Carers.

    The Edward Gostling Foundation have given us some money to fund more activities for our Young Carers Project.

    Children in Need have also awarded us a grant for a Young Carers Mental Health worker which we have recently recruited for.

    Alvaston WI have given us £175 to help support the Young Carers.

    The Mayor of Ripley gave funds to help us provide additional emotional support to the Young Carers.

    Rothera Sharp has also kindly donated funds to support the Young Carers service.

    The Mary Potter Hospital Trust gave a grant to support a specific family that we support who was in crisis.

    We are continually working to raise unrestricted funds out in our community and if you can help us to fundraise or donate please contact Amanda – Amanda.gowing@derbyshirecarers.co.uk or ring 01773 833 833
