A Registered Charity - No. 1103850

We all know how hard it’s been recently. Yet, despite everything, it’s been wonderful to see how our community has pulled together. So many of you have been connecting online at DSO’s regular events.

We normally go a little quiet at this time of year. However, in these exceptional times, we are seeking to bring some joy this summer. Whilst we still cannot meet in person, we have moved our usual summer party online with a series of events that you can enjoy in your own safe spaces, throughout the summer. We hope you enjoy them – and look forward to being able to meet again in person.

Keep an eye on your emails and our closed Facebook group for details of how to sign-up for the individual events.

Stay safe and with best wishes from our DSO family to yours.
