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.

Take a Break Chesterfield

Carers week kicked off in Chesterfield with the Take a Break event for Carers Organised by Derbyshire Black & Minority Ethnic (BME) Engagement Forum Carers Project, LinksCVS and Derbyshire Carers Association.

Carers were treated to a delicious lunch before settling down to hear some speakers on Carers support that is out there.

Throughout the afternoon there was craft making and massage on offer which Carers were able to take advantage of.

Derbyshire Carers Association supports unpaid Carers across the City and County to help them continue with their caring role.
