About the directory

Derbyshire Directory logo

The Derbyshire Directory is an online list of more than 3,000 community groups, sports clubs, charities and voluntary organisations.

The aim of the directory is simple − to help you find local community organisations.

What sort of groups are listed?

  • Hobby and activity clubs
  • Groups for parents, children and young people
  • Charities
  • Church and faith groups
  • Sports clubs
  • Social groups for older people
  • Community groups
  • Advice services for medical conditions

All groups listed are not-for-profit. Sometimes, if there isn't a local branch of a charity, we list a national contact.

How often is the directory updated?

New entries are added most weeks.

Groups registered on the directory are responsible for checking their information is up-to-date. We also contact them every few weeks to remind them to check their details.

If you find an entry you think is out of date please email directory@derbyshire.gov.uk

Will I find childcare on the Derbyshire Directory?

We list activity groups for children and teenagers. If you are looking for registered childcare (childminders, nurseries, playgroups, crèches) please use our Family Information Directory.

Are sports clubs included?

We list community sports clubs on the Derbyshire Directory. However, we do not list profit-making organisations such as golf clubs and dancing schools.
