Closure of the Disabilities Living Centre Nottinghamshire (DLC) and Statement from the Trustees

Over the past year the Board of Trustees of the DLC has reviewed the funding pressures on our Organisation and the scope and sustainability on all areas of its service delivery.

At a Special General Meeting held on Monday 27 March 2017 the DLC’s Board of Trustees met to consider the future of the Charity. It was with much sadness that it was unanimously agreed that the Charity would close due to the lack of long term sustainable funding.

The Charity will formally close on Monday 31 July 2017.

We are justifiably proud of the achievements and reputation of the DLC over the past 30 years and of the dedication and professionalism of staff and volunteers over this period.

We understand that the loss of this service will bring sadness to individual service users and those professional groups that have used the service and facilities as well as the staff and volunteers.

We would like to thank you for your support over the years and at this difficult time.

Final service dates to note:

  • Assessments at the Centre 16 June 2017
  • Home Visits 30 June 2017
  • Telephone Helpline 7 July 2017
  • Henry Smith Charity project “Independence in the Community” 14 July 2017
  • Disabilities Living Centre will formally close on 31 July 2017.

  • Tuesday 6 June 10am-2pm
  • Thursday 8 June 10am-2pm
  • Friday 16 June 10am-12.30pm
