Coronavirus Update

24/03/20

DIAS will continue to deliver services, although the way we do this will change in line with advice from Scottish Government. To keep everyone safe we will be offering support by telephone, and we are currently exploring the best option for online support. If you feel that on-line really isn’t suitable for you then we can discuss with you alternative ways to offer support, either from ourselves or by linking you with other services.

You can contact us by phone on 01382 205515, leave a message and we can ring you back if needed.
