Dirleton Village has three associations that help support residents and coordinate village activities.
The Dirleton Village Association (DVA) is responsible for matters such as planning, preservation and liason with the East Lothian Council about village matters.
Dirleton Good Neighbours (DGN) works alongside the DVA and promotes connections within the village community. It organises community events and works with the Coastal Area partnership.
Dirleton Area Response Team (DART) is a permanently formed but on demand activated part of the East Lothian Emergency Plan. It is brought into operation when local conditions require a link to the East Lothian Emergency teams e.g. during First Covid Wave, Harsh winters etc.
