Derby County Disabled Supporters Club.
The DCDSC is a registered charity and we pride ourselves on helping Derby County Football Club provide some of the best facilities in the country for the disabled football fan visiting Pride Park
We contributed £3000 in the season 2008/09 the main part going toward the purchase of a new buggy. This is used to help ferry disabled and elderly supporters to and from the stadium. We also had a drop down kerb installed near to the disabled match day ticket office, to allow better access for wheelchair users and those unsteady on their feet. Presently for the season 2010/11 we are helping to provide emergency pull cords in all disabled concourse toilets.
2011/12 Season (so far) DCDSC contributed £400.00 towards the repair of vandalised shelter in the south car park at Pride Park..
We were instrumental in getting the bus shelter erected in the South Car Park for the elderly & ambulant disabled, an area where they can wait for the buggies, sheltered from the bad weather. It was very disappointing to see vandalised.
The DCDSC has an active social side too, we hold regular events through the season at Pride Park, as well as An End of Season Event & A Christmas Party. Our ultimate aim would be to have our own club room, where both home and away disabled supporters could meet before the game in a warm and friendly environment, similar to those at Man Utd & Leeds, this could then double up as a meeting/social venue.
We are always on the look out for new members, you don’t have to be a season ticket holder (but you do need to be a Rams fan) to join. Membership fee is just £10.00 a season.
