Helping over 1,000 people a year
Each year we help over 1,000 people with disabilities, their carers and families.
We get over 6,000 inquiries a year. We help people with their problems and issues and regularly help clients claim over £2m in benefits they are entitled to. This also contributes to the local economy in the Suffolk Coastal area.
We are part-funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the remainder by the generosity of local councils, charities and individuals who have been helped by DAS and by the dedication of our volunteers. We need to raise £184,000 per year to keep our service going and any contributions help, including donations via Local Giving.
Our customer satisfaction surveys show consistently high levels of satisfaction. We are always ready to listen to ideas for improvement from our customers and volunteers.
