DAS is a friendly local charity; working at the heart of the East Suffolk community for 38 years, we advise children and adults with disability related issues. We also advise family members and carers.

Our charity object is: “The relief of children and adults with disabilities and their carers in East Suffolk and nearby areas.” Registered number 1152772. 

Our office is open Mondays – Thursdays every week (closed between Christmas and New Year).

We provide a full and comprehensive telephone and email advice service and also offer some face to face appointments for clients in the office.

We can help you complete benefits forms (PIP, UC, ESA, DLA, AA etc) either over the telephone or face-to-face in person. There is currently a longer waiting time for our face-to-face appointments.

If your benefit has been stopped, you have not been awarded at all, or have been awarded less than expected – PLEASE get in touch. We can advise you and even represent you at appeal – we have an excellent record in this area.

If you need us, please contact us:

In January 2023 a grateful client wrote: “Let me just say it again, thank you for all your help. Sometimes people don’t know the difference they make in someone’s life, but you made a difference in mine when I had no one or nowhere to turn. I would like you to remember that.”

“Enabling those who live with disabilities to gain the same rights and quality of life opportunities as others.”
