Dynamic Community Fusion (DCF) is a Community Interest Company (CIC) established in 2019 and operated throughout the Scottish Borders.
Our aim is to make a positive difference to people’s lives. We are interested in developing new solutions which help marginalised groups to fully engage and participate in society.
Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. Using existing relationships with established organisations and creating new relationships to challenge and address unmet needs, help us to deliver services where we can enhance people’s quality of life.
