Press release – Suffolk Coastal Disability Charity Awarded National Lottery Grant
Disability Advice Service East Suffolk (DAS) has been awarded £301,210 over three years by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund. Disability Advice Service provides a range of advice to disabled people and carers living in the Suffolk Coastal area. This includes help with welfare benefits, and accessing housing and support services.
Jen Morcom Manager of Disability Advice Service said: ‘This is a great opportunity for us to increase the availability of our advice service to disabled people and family carers. We will be able to get out to people living in rural areas who cannot get to our office as well as increasing the availability of telephone advice and appointments. Our customers tell us that prompt advice improves their financial and mental wellbeing and decreases their isolation. The money will help us to make sure that we are there to help everyone who needs us.
Disabled people have so much to offer their local communities, but many are driven to despair by difficulties with welfare benefit claims, negotiating social care systems and the many other issues they face. Although we will still need to fundraise to make up the full costs of our service each year, we are so grateful to all those people who play the Big Lottery each week – their money will help us to make a big difference to disabled people and carers!’
