Can you take Lambeth’s leading Disabled People’s Organisation to the next level?

Disability Advice Service Lambeth (dasl) provides a wide range of services to Disabled people in Lambeth including advice, information, professional and hate crime advocacy, Direct Payments support, social and sports activities and peer support services. We have an important local policy voice on issues affecting Disabled people. Through the Lambeth Independent Living and Carers Partnership we also work with older people and carers.

Our current Director is retiring after 18 years in post during which time our organisation has developed from a new, independent charity to Lambeth’s leading pan-impairment Disabled People’s Organisation. We are now recruiting a new Director to take us forward into the next phase of our development which will be shaped by our Strategic Plan 2018 - 2021.
dasl is 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 are looking for an individual who shares our vision of an inclusive society where Disabled people enjoy equal rights and opportunities, and where diversity is valued. The successful candidate will have substantial senior level management experience in strategic development, service delivery and financial and people management and must 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.

The post offers an exciting prospect for a person with the skills and confidence to guide our organisation through the current challenges and further develop our services and influence for the benefit of Disabled people in Lambeth.
