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
Over the past few seasons we have contributed £3000 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.
Paid £2000 for the purchase of emergency pull cord alarms fitted in all disabled concourse toilets. 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. Though this has now been removed for the building of the new velodrome.
Most recent purchase was £250.00 to pay for new buggy batteries.
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.

This season we have added a new membership for non-disabled Rams supporters. To join “The Friends of DCDSC” click on the link below to download an application form.
“Friends” membership is just £10.00 a season.
What we are doing is just charging a small fee for the social nights of £3.00 for Disabled supporter & carer, this is really just to cover refreshment costs. But you can save yourself some money by buying a DCDSC Social Season Ticket. Price for this is just £10.00 for disabled & carer. As there are 7 – 8 socials per season it’s well worth the money.
We are also offering a special bonus for the first 50 members that buy a Social Season Ticket they will also get a FREE CredAbility Card this usually costs £18.00 for 3 years so the overall savings for buying a Social Season Ticket are approx £42.00! Doesn’t that sound like a good deal
As stated above, we also have our friends membership (£10.00 per person) for other family and friends, so there’s they can come along too.
Hope to see you soon – take care
