The Friendship Force of Derbyshire is part of a world-wide network of over 18000 people, belonging to 400 clubs in 70 countries whose mission is to promote world peace and understanding by creating an environment where individual friendships can be established across the barriers that separate people. It does this primarily through an extensive program of homestay journeys, formerly known as exchanges.

Since the founding of Friendship Force International in 1977, nearly a million volunteer Ambassadors and Hosts have participated in such exchanges, with over 300 new journeys taking place every year across all five continents of our world.

The Friendship Force of Derbyshire was established in 1982 and is part of the UK network of 14 clubs with around 500 members. We normally host one or two visits each year of between five and seven days, and send Ambassadors to stay with another club once or twice each year.
