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.

LOOK OUT FOR THE CARERS’ SURVEY

LOOK OUT FOR THE CARERS’ SURVEY

This month, around 1,000 carers in Derbyshire, who are selected at random, will receive a copy of a postal questionnaire as part of the Personal Social Services Survey of Adult Carers in England (SACE).

The questionnaire is being sent out by Derbyshire County Council as part of a national survey; all local authorities with responsibility for providing adult social care services are required to run it every two years.

The survey asks questions about carers’ quality of life and the impact that services have on this. The questionnaire also collects information on the general health and wellbeing of carers.

The information gathered through the survey is very useful in helping Derbyshire County Council to understand how services might be improved. It also feeds into national official statistics used to compare performance with other local authorities.

If you receive a questionnaire and have any questions, or need help in completing it, please get in touch; contact details are provided in the letter that is sent out with the questionnaire.
