dasl was established as an independent organisation in 2001 and continues to be the leading pan-impairment Disabled People’s Organisation in Lambeth. 

In 2011, dasl and a number of independent local organisations became part of the Lambeth Resolve consortium, which provided a range of information, advice, community development and advocacy services for local Disabled people, older people and carers and was funded by Lambeth Council. 

dasl has provided several different support services throughout this partnership, including the Carers’ Hub Enquiry and Information Service, which ended in March 2015.

This consortium has developed over subsequent years and most recently been renamed in 2020 as Connect Lambeth. Age UK Lambeth continue to hold the contract for Connect Lambeth.
