About DVSM Services

People are at the heart of our approach and we use a case-by-case process to identify, understand and respond to a person’s individual needs. This could include advocacy, housing services and/or goal setting.

We work in partnership with people to meet their needs while also developing their skills to be able to seek help from others into the future. This involves us working with the broader system and connecting people to the most appropriate support services.
