Disability Advice Service Lambeth (dasl) is a local, user-led organisation controlled by Disabled people. For twenty years, we have worked to support Disabled people in Lambeth and neighbouring boroughs to achieve our vision of a world in which diversity is valued, difference is celebrated and equal rights and opportunities are enjoyed by all.
We provide a wide range of peer-led services, including advice, information, professional advocacy, direct payments support, social and sports activities and employment support services. Through the Connect Lambeth partnership, we also work with older people and carers.
We are a well-respected local charity, valued both for delivering our core services to a high standard and for developing innovative projects to improve support and opportunities for Disabled people. We are known for our positive and creative approach to building and working in partnerships and for our contribution to strengthening the voluntary and community sector in the borough. We have an important local policy voice on issues affecting Disabled people.
We are looking for a new Director, who will lead our organisation as we emerge from the pandemic, reflect on what we have learnt and develop a new strategy so that we can further develop our services and influence for the benefit of Disabled people in Lambeth.
As our Director, you will be a Disabled person or have a strong understanding of the lived experience of Disabled people, have substantial senior management experience in strategic development, service delivery and financial and people management and have excellent communication skills.
You will lead a team of dedicated and capable staff in delivering and developing high quality and effective services with the support and guidance of our experienced Management Committee.
