DVA Health & Social Care Voluntary Sector Forum

The Forum is open to any health related or social care voluntary group in Derbyshire. It meets quarterly throughout the year and is a friendly, informal meeting and always welcomes new members. It provides an atmosphere where groups are able to ‘network’.  Members are also able to hear and debate presentations on current issues and the Forum is frequently used as a consultation mechanism by statutory bodies.
