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.

Free Welfare Rights Clinics

Derbyshire Carers Association is working with Derbyshire Welfare Rights Service to offer carers free information and advice on welfare issues. The first clinics will be held in September, and if carers feel these are beneficial we hope to roll these out across Derbyshire.

DCA is committed to organising regular Welfare Rights Clinics, enabling carers to access specialist information and advice on benefits, allowances and other issues.

Our first clinic will be Thursday 21st September at Derbyshire Carers Association, Genesis Business Park, 32-46 King Street, Alfreton, DE55 7DQ
