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.

Questionnaire for Young Adult Carers

Derbyshire Carers Association is currently working with the University of Derby to identify what support is available for Young Adult Carers (18-25 year olds) and where there are gaps in services. We have held Focus Groups where Young Adult Carers can share their experiences as well as Telephone Consultations with Carers. This information will then be used by Carers Trust to help them decide where to prioritise funding in the future for Young Adult Carers.

There is a link below to an online Questionnaire for Young Adult Carers to complete to share their experiences which will then help shape future services for Younger Carers.

All of the questionnaires are anonymous and only take a few minutes to complete.
