Supporting Community Members in  Time of Crisis

Who We Are:      

Diamond Valley Community Support (DVCS) is a not-for-profit charitable organisation that has been serving the local 
Diamond Valley community since 1972. DVCS services are free, confidential, impartial and independent. We assist over 4,000 people experiencing 
financial and/or personal hardship each year, and we are supported by more than 100 volunteers and 5 staff.

Our Services Include:

Emergency Relief, Education Support, Financial Counselling, Personal Counselling, Family Legal Service, Tax Help, Public Internet Kiosk

Keeping an open door for our most vulnerable 

As we all navigate our way through the Coronavirus crisis; many organisations like ours are closing their doors to the clients, either due to lack of volunteers to operate the services, or moving to a remote service via phone and email.

We are keeping our doors open; as many of the most vulnerable within our community do not have access to phones, or email, or computers and printers. They will be left behind through this crisis. Many of the emergency plans and closures already in place leave them behind
