Disability Advice Service Lambeth (dasl) is Lambeth’s leading pan-impairment Disabled People’s Organisation. We provide a wide range of services to Disabled people in Lambeth, including advice, information, professional advocacy, direct payments support, social and sports activities and peer support services.

We have been awarded a three year grant to develop our work with Autistic parents and parents with learning disabilities, including parents who are part of Child Protection processes. The role will be providing one to one professional advocacy support and to co-produce a self and / or peer advocacy service. The post will sit within the wider Advocacy team.

We are seeking to appoint a Professional Advocate to complete our experienced team as soon as possible. Experience of providing independent advocacy and supporting parents during Child Protection processes would be an advantage but is not essential. You may have a different background in a field such as social work, health care, disability services, education or training and employment.

We are looking for someone with an understanding of, and commitment to, furthering the rights of Disabled people and supporting dasl’s mission. You should have at least two years’ experience, either in a paid or unpaid capacity, of working with people learning disabilities and / or Autistic people.

dasl is committed to equality, diversity and human rights. As a DDPO, we welcome applications from Deaf and Disabled people especially from Black and minoritised communities and the LGBTQI+ community. Our office at “we are 336”, 336 Brixton Road, London SW9 7AA is fully accessible.
