Our Heroes

When you need a little help…

DAS and its clients are heavily dependent on a lot of people who mostly give up their time in an unpaid capacity in order to support our cause.

The team – volunteers in addition to the Manager and paid staff – who deliver advice, represent clients at appeal, and support people with illnesses and disabilities (and their families/carers) in East Suffolk:

Jo – Manager, Col – Facilities Manager, Alison & Ruth – Duty Officers, Julie & Sue – Volunteer Duty Advisors, Alan, Dee & Louise – Volunteer Appeals Officers, Joyce & Liz – Volunteer Advisors, June & Sharon – Volunteer in the Listening Service, Isobel – Volunteer Project Worker, Mike – Volunteer Fundraiser, Andy – Volunteer IT Co-ordinator

Additionally a number of generous hearted professionals provide expert advice to us “pro bono” (free of charge) on a project by project basis – often whilst holding down a full time job in their area of expertise.

And not forgetting the helpful and supportive folk at Suffolk ProHelp and Community Action Suffolk.
