Community Development Work with Disabled People

Community Development Work with Disabled People

DASL is Lambeth's leading pan-disability Disabled People's organisation. We have a long history of working in the community to develop projects and activities to support disabled people's voice, campaigning on key issues for local disabled people and partnership work with Lambeth Council, Health and other voluntary organisations on policies and strategies.

For us, our role is more than providing the major services - information, advice, advocacy, Direct Payments Support - which the Council commissions from us. It means working with, and in support of, our many hundreds of disabled members and service users and of the wider disability community.

Since April 2015, DASL has been providing a new Community Development Service for Disabled People as part of the Independent living and Carers’ Partnership.

Some of our recent and current community development work is featured on these community development pages. You can also read about some of the work of the project in its first year in Louise’s report here End_of_Year_Report_Final_Version_Com_Dev_2016.pdf

We are delighted that our Community Development Worker - Disabled People is Louise Holden. Louise will be known to many of you from her previous posts at DASL as our Information Worker and, until April 2015, through her work for Carers Hub Lambeth.

With Louise’s help we will be building on these projects and working on new ones with other Disabled People’s Organisations, including the Lambeth Pan-Disability Forum at ‘we are 336’ and across Lambeth.
