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 County Collection

On Saturday 9th February Derbyshire Carers were invited to do a collection at Derby County Football Club for the Young Carers we support.

Staff and volunteers (whom included some young carers) braved the cold to raise a whopping £625.99 for young carers.

A big thank you to all the fans from both teams who donated.

As part of the day Derby County generously gave us some free tickets for the game so that the volunteers could enjoy the match after the collection.

And DCFC won 2-0 to complete the day
