Carers in Derbyshire has been created by a partnership of unpaid carers and local health, social care and voluntary sector organisations, to jointly create a partnership website to act as ‘starting point’ for carers who are using the internet to find help, advice and support services at any time of the day or night.
We can give you free, confidential, impartial and independent advice and information on a wide range of subjects. We can work with you to sort out any debt worries and claim all the benefits you may be entitled to, help with housing and employment problems, or deal with queries about consumer or tax issues. We can advise on legal matters, answer questions about immigration, and we have lots of experience on family and personal matters too.
