How DSAC Works
We want everyone we support to be able to have a say. DSAC wants to know what you think. If you get support you can be part of a group near you. If there is not a group near you then you can ask how to be involved.
How we find out what you think
We want you to have choice and control in your life. To do this we want to know what you think about
- What we do now
- How good we are at supporting you
- What we do in the future
