Helping people grow

Padley has a tremendous heritage in Derby, founded in 1985 it is one of Derby’s longest established charities.  It is also one of the largest local charities.  Our purpose is to provide services to the most deprived and vulnerable in our society.  This includes helping people with a range of issues such as homelessness,  debt and destitution, drugs, alcohol, mental health issues, physical disabilities, learning disabilities, severe autism and long term unemployment.

Our ethos is all about growth and move-on, for some this is about moving on from a difficult past, for others it’s dealing with overwhelming circumstances or coping with a disability or condition that has limited their engagement with society, robbed them of their self- confidence or changed their life. While we help people rebuild their lives and confidence, we provide a safe environment for those who are most at risk in society.
