Consultation on Unpaid Family Carers in Derbyshire

15 October 2019

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.

Consultation on Unpaid Family Carers in Derbyshire

Derbyshire County Council is due to carry out a self-assessment exercise on the way they support unpaid family carers in Derbyshire.
This will help them to reflect on what is going well and where things could be done differently.
They would like to do this together with carers and the people working in Derbyshire who support carers with a little help from an organisation called Sortified.

You are invited to join a workshop to discuss and decide how DCC are doing locally in supporting unpaid family carers on

Monday 28th October
10.00 – 13.00
at the Post Mill Centre,
South Normanton, Alfreton DE55 2EJ.

Light refreshments will be provided.

If you would like to attend, please
or call 01629 536177 to book a place.

This work is being supported by the Department of Health and Social Care and so every Local Authority across the county will be expected to carry out a self-assessment.
The results will be shared nationally to pinpoint common themes and areas for further work, ensuring everyone is delivering on their duties to carers.
