The D+C Group is looking to work with community groups across North Herts to help them achieve their goals. Each group is individual and their own entity, but by working together on common goals and sharing knowledge and experience, we can achieve more and have a prominent voice when we speak as one.

If you have already established a community group would like to know more, please get in touch.

If there is a section of the community that isn’t currently represented in your area and want us to help create a new group to help, we would love to hear from you.

Here are some of the groups that already work under the D&C banner:
