DASL is a London based charity that helps communities to tackle the problems caused by drug and alcohol misuse.
Our aim is to help build stronger, safer and healthier communities where everyone has the opportunity to realise their full potential.
With over 30 years experience of providing substance misuse, education, training and outreach services, DASL has developed innovative projects working with Black and Asian communities, lesbians and gay men, older people and people in contact with the criminal justice system.
We are also very experienced in supporting people with difficulties related to mental health as well as people experiencing domestic violence.
If you are concerned about your own alcohol or drug use or that of someone else then you will find the information you need on our website to make contact. If you are interested in the work that we do, then please get in touch.
Sue Kenten, Chief Executive
Jeff Self has been voluntarily offering HR and other directional expertise on DASL's Executive Committee for many years. This July he is embarking on a new adventure and raising funds for DASL at the same time.
In Jeff's words:
"I'm going to run the 10k Great London Run, finishing in the Olympic arena, on 19th July, 3 days before my 65th birthday.
I know it's going to be great fun, but I thought while I'm at it why not see if I can raise some money for DASL (Drug and Alcohol Services for London Ltd). DASL provide support to people and families experiencing problems with drugs and/or alcohol - and, indeed, with other forms of addiction. I have been involved with the charity for many years and can vouch for their valuable work.
OK, I know 10k isn't really up there with marathons and half-marathons - but any contribution you can make would be really appreciated."
