Client Reference Committee

A voice for you

Making DLi a better place

The formation of the Client Reference Committee (CRC) is based on our unwavering commitment to inclusivity and client engagement.

We firmly believe that involving clients in decision-making is essential for delivering services that meet their needs and make DLi a better place. By creating a structured and focused environment, the CRC provides a platform for clients to offer their experiences, insights, and unique perspectives to help us better understand the needs of our clients and make more informed decisions.

Under the guidance of an Executive Management Team member and a second DLi representative, the CRC serves as a platform for open and honest discussions.

Meetings encourage active engagement and collaboration among the group members, enabling them to share the feedback provided by their peers and support networks and their thoughts, concerns, and ideas related to DLi’s service delivery.

Through respectful dialogue, the CRC provides and develops meaningful recommendations to the Board and Management to ensure we continue to deliver exceptional support.

How to provide your feedback and input

Are you an existing client and want to provide your thoughts, suggestions and feedback to the committee?
