The DCN strives to support our priorities of better lives and stronger economies. We do this through:

  • Collaboration and Networking
  • Influencing national policy
  • Commissioning evidence based research and developing new ways of working with our member organisations and partners
  • Using our connections to our communities to give real-life, real-time perspectives

Our work plans focus on four areas: Better Lives, Stronger Economies, Enhancing Quality of Life, and Sustainable Finance and Workforce.
