Derby Association of Community Partners

The Derby Association of Community Partners (DACP) is a voluntary organisation for tenants, community groups and other partner agencies.

We are an established group of tenants who volunteer our time to make sure Derby Homes are providing you with an excellent service. We have good, in-depth knowledge of housing issues and how Derby Homes operates as a company. This means we’re in a good position to be able to help you if you have an idea how they could improve or if you have an issue you need resolving.

Our annual general meeting  takes place in May every year.

We also work with Derby Homes to improve services by carrying out inspections of empty properties that are ready to let and by talking to tenants who have experienced a service to find out how the service was for them from start to finish.

Helping Hand Scheme for Young People

We also administrate the Helping Hand scheme. This scheme provides grants to support young people who have a skill, talent or interest, but need a bit of help to develop it.
