When we say a Disabled person we include people with a long-term health condition, mental health condition, visual, mobility or hearing impairment; Deaf people; people who are neurodivergent and people with a learning difficulty.

In this role you will learn to support Disabled people to apply for welfare benefits, with a particular focus on disability benefits (for example, Personal Independence Payment, Attendance Allowance) and appeal decisions.

You don’t need to have done this job before or have any qualifications for this part-time role – full training and support is provided. This post runs until March 2026.

We want to employ people who have the right attitude and a desire to learn. You will be able to show your commitment to disability equity, social justice and creating a fair society. You may have your own personal experience of the welfare benefits system.

As you learn and build confidence, knowledge and skills you will start to work with your own caseload with full supervision and support. You will be training at the same time as trainee advice workers in other Disabled People’s Organisations across London so you will be able to share that journey and support each other.

dasl’s success comes from dedicated work of our skilled staff, many of whom are Disabled people. You will be valued for who you are in our supportive and friendly team.
