ABOUT US

Cypress is a non-profit making organisation that works to promote an equitable and inclusive society.  By working with people to give them choices in their lives we seek to improve health and well-being and build stronger communities.  We work throughout Derbyshire developing partnerships with other organisations to promote the welfare of all people within society. 

 

We were initially funded by Derbyshire County Council (DCC) to set up and facilitate social groups for parents and carers of children and young people with disabilities and/or additional needs.  We have recently taken on a more substantial role and have begun to build upon the provision we provide.  This has included a successful bid of £10,000 to purchase resources for play schemes (including multi-sensory equipment) and funding to run forty five summer play schemes across Derbyshire this year. 

 

We are a registered provider with DCC.  Although at the present time we do not have a base within Derbyshire. We are established in a number of community venues, including Children Centres, across five districts of Derbyshire.  If you would like to find out more about our organisation or would like to work with us please use our contact form.

 

Social Groups

Social groups for parents and carers of children and young people with additional needs and/or disabilities are run in Alfreton, BlackwellChesterfield, Cotmanhay and North Wingfield.

 

We would like to thank Derbyshire County Council for their support in funding our activities and providing guidance and  information.

 

If you would like to come and work with us we have a number of opportunities
