About Us

Betty and Robin Digby

Dinas Powys Voluntary Concern (DPVC) provides a service to individuals, groups and to the many  voluntary organisations operating in the village.

In particular it aims to help, support and improve the quality of life of the elderly and people who have a mobility issue.  

DPVC assists individual when they experience unforeseen difficulties by visiting them and finding appropriate sources of help.


We’ve had a busy year with the establishment of the Monday Community Club, a new befriending scheme and many fund raising events from energetic fun runs to more genteel concerts.  

The Quiz night in particular was well supported by Dinas Powys villagers, raising almost £900!  Quiz Master Paul, Score on the Doors Jo and organiser Barbara are pictured here with some of the raffle prizes donated by village businesses

Now Christmas and winter are upon us it’s more important than usual to make sure your elderly neighbours, friends and family are warm and cared for.  Loneliness can be keenly felt at this time of year so if you can spare some time pop round for a chat; get those mince pies out and kettle on, it can make a real difference to an elderly person.

If you know of anyone who might benefit from our support please don’t hesittate to give the centre a call.


Please have a look at our pages describing the services we offer and links to other related websites.  In addition please feel free to contact us.  Our office hours are 9.30am until 12.30pm on weekday mornings.

DPVC is almost entirely managed and run by local volunteers.  We are always looking for new ideas and volunteers to bring them to reality.

 If you've a few spare hours a week please contact us to find out how you can serve our community.  Take a look at our volunteers page to find out how involvement with DPVC is fun and rewarding.

DPVC holds numerous fund raising events throughout the year.  Quiz nights, musical events and parties help raise much needed funds to support our activities.  If you would like to hold events to support DPVC or help with planned fund raisers please get in touch.  The fund raising committee is always receptive to new members and ideas.

In additon please have a look at our events calendar to see what's coming up.  Tickets are availble from the two village post offices, Parish Hall and the DPVC resource centre.
