Dinas powys Voluntary Concern

HELPING, SUPPORTING AND IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR THE ELDERLY

Dinas Powys Voluntary Concern (DPVC) has served the local community of Dinas Powys for over 40 years. From its early incarnation as Dinas Powys Council of Social Services, and its remit of helping and co ordinating existing organisations to its present form of running some of these services itself. It has stayed true to its original concept of local help for local people.

  • To enable the elderly and those with limited mobility to maintain independence and an involvement in community life

  • To limit social isolation and make sure that people stay connected and enjoying life
