Derby City Update

20 November 2018

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.

Derby City Update

Derby City Council has made changes to how Carers services are delivered in Derby City. We have been asked by them to inform as many Carers as we are able of those. Please see letters from the council to all Carers.
