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.
