Change forums

Learn how we bring customers together to collaborate on change – and find out how to get involved.

What are change forums? 

Our customers feel the impact whenever industry processes, central systems or services change.  

We run change forums to make sure customers collaborate on the changes that affect them – from idea to implementation. 

In these meetings, customers come together to: 

  • help develop ideas 
  • share what they need from a proposed change  
  • make decisions on the scope of a change 
  • create plans for a smooth delivery   

All the industry meetings we organise or take part in are explained below.  

Find out what they are, when they happen, and how to get involved. 


DSG is a sub-group of the Data Services Contract (DSC) Change Management Committee (ChMC). 

In DSG meetings, we share recommendations on changes to our IT services and systems – and wider industry change.
