Overview

In March 2022, Disley Parish Council was delighted to launch the Disley Volunteer Network or DVN.

The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated the superb community spirit in Disley and Newtown and the Parish Council hopes that the DVN will encourage even more community involvement.

The Council has established a database of volunteers which it emails with volunteering opportunities, training and general information. The Parish Council only emails information genuinely relating to local volunteering and never passes details on to third parties.

The DVN is also included in the Disley Village Resilience Plan, so that the group can be contacted in the event of a major local incident.

If you would like to join the DVN (with no obligation) please email your details to: admin@disleyparishcouncil.org.uk
