DASL (Disability Advice Service Lambeth) is an independent Disabled People’s Organisation set up in 2001 which works with disabled and older people and carers in Lambeth. We provide a range of services including information, advice, advocacy and independent living support. Some of these are part of the Independent Living and Carers Partnership (ILCP). Our core commitment is to enabling disabled people to secure their rights, to make choices about how and where they live and to play an active role in their communities.
Advice, Information and Advocacy
Our Professional Advocacy service helps support people to have their say about issues which are important to them and to give them greater choice and control in their lives. Our Specialist Advice Service offers advice casework on welfare benefits, housing and debt issues to mental health service users. Our Disability Hate Crime Project can help individual disabled people who experience hate crime and is also working to raise awareness of this issue and improve responses by agencies working together.
Direct Payments Support
Thinking about managing your own community care services? Experienced staff from our Direct Payments Support Service can give you the advice, support and training you need to make a Direct Payment work for you.
Community Development Service and Into Sport project
We work with disabled people to strengthen their voices on key issues such as access and cuts and changes in services. Encouraging more people to make sport and physical activity part of their lives is a specific area of our work.
