DCG Parent and Carer Support Group

We have created a Parent and Carer Support Group on Facebook, as a place for you to:

  • Access resources and content related to well-being, careers, study skills, working from home etc.
  • Ask questions and offer suggestions related to College.
  • Network and support other parents and carers.
  • Showcase some of the great work that’s happening within College.

The page is managed by the Student Progression Coaches from each campus who can answer your queries. Join the group Parent and Carer Support Group
