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.

Support for Deaf women

A local charity called Deaf-initely women, seeks to support deaf and hard of hearing women locally.

They have a number of free sign language classes on offer which aim to give women who have hearing loss communication skills in sign language.

See below for the two areas where they are running courses.
