Strategy Group

We are setting up a Strategy Group made up of DSV members. The purpose of the Strategy Group is to support the network and its delivery through sharing information and expertise.

A workshop took place on 26th June 2018 when DSV members came together to discuss and agree the terms of reference, size and remit of the group. Please click link to see the notes of the meeting

Over the summer we will be launching a campaign to recruit volunteers to the Strategy Group. If you are interested in joining contact Lisa.

Focus Groups

DSV has three specialist focus groups concerned with:

  • Transport
  • Health & Social Care
  • Housing

The Focus Groups address specific issues from the perspective of older people. They respond to consultations and seek to find solutions to issues that may impact on the lives of older people. If interested in joining any of these groups contact Lisa.
