About us

Derbyshire Carers Association was founded by Gerry Fryer in 1988 following circumstances which found him in the caring position as described by himself here.

Once he realised how little support there was for Carers Gerry aimed for and met his aspiration for Carer support provision.

With the help of some other Carers, Derbyshire Carers Association gained it’s first paid employee in 1989, this has now grown to over 30 dedicated and passionate employees as well as a large number of volunteers.

Carers Week Event - Dobbies Garden Centre

11th June 2014 saw Carers from across the High Peak; Buxton and Chesterfield areas flock to Dobbies Garden Centre as part of DCA’s Carer’s Week special events programme.

It was a chance to meet other Carers over a coffee, (some Carers hadn’t met each other since our visit to the Museum of Childhood last year), an opportunity to explore all the shopping outlets and even dig into the garden centre to buy those last-minute bedding plants to brighten the garden.
