“Padley is my second home. I feel safe, the staff make me happy and they make me feel wanted. I would not be here without Padley after the death of both my partner and my sister. It gives me a morning routine and purpose every day. Padley has saved me”
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 vulnerable in our City of Derby. This includes helping people with a range of issues such as homelessness, debt, addiction, mental health issues 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 which has 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.
