Healthwatch Derbyshire’s Spotlight on Carers Event

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.

They will feature an overview of the report, along with guest speakers talking about their experiences of being a carer, and also professional speakers discussing their work with carers.

If you are a carer and would like to join them at this event, please complete the registration form in the attached pdf.

There will be stalls to browse at intervals throughout the day. A light lunch will be served, following which the AGM will commence. During the AGM, participants will have the opportunity to input their top three priority areas to improve health and social care services across Derbyshire.
