Padley is a Derby-based charity founded in 1985 delivering services to people with complex needs working with some of the most socially excluded people in the local community. These are people with issues such as:
Mental health issues
Learning disabilities
Drug or alcohol addiction
Long-term unemployment
Support for ex-offenders
Needs related to rebuilding a shattered life

The parish supports the work of the Padley group by collecting donations of food and other items.

Food donations
Donations of non perishable food can be left in the collection box in the church porch. Please check the use by date on all food.  Volunteers from the parish take the food to Padley as needed

Other donations
Padley do not accept furniture, electrical goods, duvets or pillows
Other small items can be donated but please remember that there is limited storage space in church.
When books have been ‘retired’ from the parish library they are also sent to Padley.
If you have a large number of items for Padley, they can be collected.
You can contact them on 01332 774480 to arrange a collection.
