  • Active Members database 

    Would you like to be more involved in the work and/or the activities of the DLA? As part of an initiative to benefit from the expertise of our wider membership, the DLA executive committee has set up an active members database. We draw on this database for assistance with writing case reports for Briefings; suggesting topics and speakers for our Practitioners Group Programme and for conferences, as well as seeking feedback and comments on responses to government and professional consultation.


    We invite any member with expertise or particular interest in these areas of work to submit their profile and contact details on the attached form (here).


    Any assistance will of course be on a voluntary basis, and we expect that almost all contact and discussion will take place by phone or email. We look forward to hearing from you.
