COVID-19 Support from DCA
Here at DCA we are committed to helping your charity, community group or social enterprise through these unsettled times. With the current COVID-19 health situation our Community is in unchartered territory. As a result, we are putting together alternatives to our usual networking and training events to ensure that our network can survive the storm.
We are here to support you and our communities, we have set up a dedicated Helpline to answer questions you may have regarding Coronavirus and your Organisation – 01202 847609 – Open between 11am and 4pm.
We will continue to receive referrals and book appointments, however, these will be conducted online rather than face to face.
FREE WEBINARS AND ONLINE VIDEO NETWORKING
Our Community Advisors shall be running webinars and online video networking to replace training sessions and face to face networking. We’re holding these on Wednesday’s from 11.30am to 12.30pm covering various topics to help support your organisations as well as helping you get answers to your queries and concerns, as well as maintaining a vital social link. These are FREE to join whilst we help each other through this, so watch this space for further updates.
