Padley was founded in 1985 and one of the longest established charities in Derby. Padley’s mission is to provide services to the most vulnerable people in the city of Derby. This includes a diverse range of people, encouraging them to grow and move on from their past to brighter futures. Padley is all about helping people rebuild their lives and confidence through providing a safe environment for those most at risk in society.
Padley House Day Centre is a place where people can come for help. From cleaning facilities to wellbeing sessions, people can access basic needs, support, and advice. Brewers in Derby donated to the Day Centre to ensure the day-to-day running of the centre, in addition to donating painting and decorating supplies to give a fresh look to some newly acquired flats. The flats provide a safe comfortable place for people who would otherwise be homeless; Padley currently have three flats but aim to have 18 by the end of 2021 to help them reach out to more people.
