This service supports unpaid carers caring for an adult residing in Derby City.
Being an unpaid carer can be an isolating experience and that often, you may feel alone, unsupported or not understood. Here at the Universal Services for Carers for Derby, we believe strongly that peer support is essential to ensuring that unpaid carers have good mental and physical well-being and that the sharing of experiences, knowledge and skills is vital to this and can be very powerful.
We aim to support carers in developing and creating new peer support groups in their communities, which are accessible and flexible to meet their individual needs. We support unpaid/informal carers in Derby City (even if they have just lost the person they care for) we are still able to support them as we are the statutory carers service for Derby City (commissioned by the Derby and Derbyshire CCG and Derby City Council).
