Changes to DAC working practices are outlined below. The team are working hard to maintain an effective and efficient DAC service, and currently the whole team are able to work.

  • The DAC team are working remotely, direct-dial landline numbers will divert to them
  • We are trying to prepare parishes for how to look after their building during this time of reduced occupancy, including remaining vigilant to lead theft.
  • All site visits are cancelled.
  • Parishes will be encouraged to send the DAC team videos to explain the site or problem, as long as creating that video does not require travel to the church during the lock-down period.
  • The DAC team will organise telephone surgeries for parishes who need in-depth assistance.
  • Delegation visits will not be able to go ahead, this may cause delays to some schemes.
  • Training day content for parishes and Quinquennial Inspectors will move online, information to follow.
