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.

Scaling new heights!

A trip to the Lea Green Centre on the edge of the Peak District National Park, saw Young Adult Carers experiencing the great outdoors and overcoming new challenges as part of DCA’s NEET* residential event. (Nov. 2014).

Lea Green is the perfect place to make great friendships and learn new skills. As the photograph shows, with a little support most challenges can be overcome!
