Derbion Cares 2023 Partner

We are proud to announce Children First Derby as our incredible new charity for 2023.

After receiving more than 40 applications from local charities for the scheme, which has returned for a second year, the Derbion Cares committee has selected Children First Derby as the centre’s charity partner for 2023.  

Launched in 1974, Children First Derby is an award-winning charity that aims to relieve the distress and suffering of children in the local area by providing life-changing support to vulnerable children, young people and families. Derbion will offer Children First Derby support throughout the year through fundraising, free in-centre activity space, staff volunteer time, centre resource  and much more.



In 2022, Derbion supported local charities YMCA Derbyshire, RSPCA Derby & District and Safe and Sound with over £37,000 worth of support, including over 180 hours of Derbion staff volunteer time, sponsorships, fundraising, facilitated donations and free space in-centre.

Derbion Cares delivered support to each of the three charities, including transforming an allotment from a run-down space into a place for reflection, and running events such providing a free hot meal for the local community and a Christmas Fun Day for YMCA Derbyshire.  Safe & Sound were provided with funding for outreach and engagement with young people throughout summer, and used Derbion’s Community Hub for a dedicated youth club. Additionally, Derbion worked with RSPCA Derby & District by hosting an event to celebrate a local RSPCA adoption success story, which raised over £700 for their 150 Hero Appeal campaign.
