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.

Aims Statement

Derbyshire Carers Association recognise that the responsibility of caring for someone who cannot manage at home without help often places great physical and emotional strain upon the Carer.
Whether you care for someone for a few hours a week or for 24 hours a day, we can offer you a wide range of confidential and independent services, helping you to care.

We also campaign for better resources, help with planning of services with appropriate agencies, and liaise with organisations with similar aims.
