Diverse Community Empowerment Services
We try to serve the communities in West Sussex and our services, where possible, are free and geared to help the marginalised and those often labelled as "Hard To Reach"
DCES strives to empower service users, to fully engage them. We believe the rhetoric and deliberations should be as transparent, inclusive and available as is legally and morally viable.
DCES challenges the status quo through understanding and sharing knowledge of universal rights and responsibilities.
We will hold the authorities to our society's social compacts.
The DCES way: striving to help service users to have their voices heard.
Together we can create a cohesive society, that promotes acceptance and understanding of others, through promoting social inclusion and equal opportunities, whilst empowering and enlightening society for more equal and fairer outcomes.
Aims to promote and advocate for an inclusive, cohesive and fairer society which embraces the concepts and principles of diversity, equality and tolerance. The organisation shall be a channel for dialog with society as a stakeholder by providing resources and conducting positive activities and projects.
