Really excited to see this post being advertised in Lambeth;

HATE CRIME ADVOCACY AND OUTREACH WORKER (DISABLED PEOPLE)

DASL is an established Disabled People’s Organisation providing a range of advice, information, professional advocacy, Personal Budgets support and peer support services to disabled people, and also to older people and carers, in Lambeth.

We chair the Lambeth Disability Hate Crime Partnership, a multi-agency group which works to increase awareness of hate crime against disabled people and to improve the support and services available to victims.

Trust for London has awarded DASL a two year grant to enable the Partnership to further develop its work. A key part of the project will be a new part-time advocacy and outreach post to work one-to-one with disabled people who experience hate crime and harassment. The advocate will be employed and managed by DASL but will work closely with all the members of the Partnership and with other key organisations and services.
