Are you a Carer in Derby City or Derbyshire?
It is estimated that 15% of the population are Carers. That means there are approximately 5.8million Carers in the UK and over 112,000 Carers in Derbyshire. Of those Carers in Derbyshire 40,000 care for someone in their own home. 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 on them.
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 campaign for better resources, help with planning of services with appropriate agencies, and liaise with organisations with similar aims.
We have offices in all parts of the county with local Area Co ordinators responding to the needs of Carers in the community.
