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.

Yesterday we were privileged to have a visit from Princess Anne to celebrate 30 years of DCA supporting Carers in Derbyshire.
People from the local community came out in force to welcome her to Ripley.
Once inside the Princess met many of the Carers we support and spoke at length with them about their caring role.
The Carers were very happy to meet her and expressed afterwards how knowledgeable she was about Carers issues and how down to earth she was.
