Dereham Christian charity launches website

DCSC screen dump2012: The Mid Norfolk Christian charity, Dereham Community Support Centre, is celebrating its first year of operation with the launch of an attractive new community website.

Dereham Community Support Centre (DCSC) has been operating for almost a year, following the decision by a group of volunteers who ran Dereham Baptist Church’s Y-Friday Youth Club to form a charitable company with the aim of increasing local facilities and activities.  This month the charity launched a new community focused website,

The website encourages local people to get involved in the work of the charity and to input ideas for further activities. The homepage features an introductory video message from Andrew Frere-Smith, Secretary of DCSC, where he poses the question: “How do you think we can continue to improve the town of Dereham?".

DCSC offers a host of activities serving the local community, particularly those people who are vulnerable or at risk of exclusion. Their work includes ESOL classes for migrant workers, a Food Bank for people in crisis, youth clubs, street outreach and signposting to other support services.

Andrew said: “Our work includes people from across the whole age spectrum and from different cultures, some of whom live with significant disadvantage.”

“We are delighted with our new website, which has already brought together a number of people who live in the Dereham area and want to support the community. We hope it will develop into a hub that connects those offering help with those needing it, and a forum for the development of new ideas.”

DCSC uses venues from across the town to host its activities, partnering with a range of agencies. It has an office in the annexe of Dereham Baptist Church.
