Because no man is an island
Derby Refugee Forum, who run Derby Refugee Advice Centre (DRAC), was established in 2000. We are a registered charity run by volunteers. We offer support, signposting and social integration for those seeking sanctuary in the UK. We do this through our drop-in sessions every Tuesday and Thursday between 10am and 4pm and a wide variety of workshops, classes and trips. We aim to provide a positive, respectful environment where people can get the help they need.
Our services support people in crisis including young people, the elderly, low-income families, children, single parents, refugees and asylum seekers of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds living in poverty. These services currently include our Food Bank, Hope Store, and Lunch Club for over 50’s.
Women’s Work (Derbyshire) Ltd is an award-winning charity with the aim of improving the health and well-being of disadvantaged and vulnerable women. Whilst we would never turn any woman in need of support away, we focus on women with complex and multifaceted needs, including those affected by domestic abuse, drug and alcohol misuse, women offenders, and those exploited by the sex industry.
YMCA enables people to develop their full potential in mind, body and spirit. Inspired by, and faithful to, our Christian values, we create supportive, inclusive and energising communities, where young people can truly belong, contribute and thrive.
Rebuild exists to empower and assist survivors of modern-day slavery and human trafficking to overcome the barriers that they might face in starting a new life, free from slavery. Supporting them to fully access opportunities to embrace a hope filled future.
Derby City Mission
We are a Christian charity with nearly 30 years of experience. We started supporting the homeless, poor and needy in 1989, founded initially as a debt advice service and were the first food bank nationwide.
From delivering the good news of Jesus to children in schools to providing a meeting place for historic street drinkers or warm food and a safe place to sleep for the homeless, we aim to meet people wherever they are on their journey in life.
Many people have been blessed
"During the first lockdown it was hard to get any help but Hope Furniture really came through for me. Fiona and her husband were really nice and helpful and before long my two-bed flat was fully furnished. I really can’t thank them enough."
