Drug and Alcohol Service for London

If you are a service user at DASL, or you are caring for someone who comes to DASL, we welcome your ideas on how we can improve our services.

There are a number of ways you can support the work DASL does:

For further information, please scroll down.


Donations

DASL offers FREE advice, guidance and treatment services to people who are vulnerable. We are passionate about helping communities in need and offering our specialist services. However, to keep running services, we rely on donations and charitable funding. The money kindly donated by you would help us to continue to provide our services for FREE and also give us an opportunity to create new and innovative services so we can help more communities and vulnerable people.

You can make a one-off or regular donation to DASL. Please contact us for further information on 0333 055 8585 or email services@dasl.org.uk for further information.

DASL would like to thank you for your generous support.


Fundraising

DASL is grateful for the financial support offered through charitable trusts, statutory funding and individual donations to allow us to continue the FREE services we provide to vulnerable communities. Without this support DASL would be unable to provide the valuable work that we offer.

If you are interested in helping DASL continue the services and help raise some funds by holding an event, taking part in a run, or any other activity please contact us for further information on how we can help set this up. DASL can provide promotional items such as t-shirts and help promote your event.

Previous fundraising activities have included our dedicated trustees taking part in running marathons, bungee jumping and sponsored walks.

DASL would like to recommend using the site 'sponsor-me.co.uk' but any sponsor websites are also welcomed.

Volunteering

Volunteering is integral to DASL’s philosophy and we greatly value the input from volunteers and ex-service users, who help to deliver and enhance DASL services.  Our volunteers have found their placements rewarding and key to building their confidence within the working environment.  Some of our volunteers have successfully moved on to gain employment, further training and qualifications.

DASL will encourage and support volunteers in undertaking training and work experience, and in gaining qualifications. In addition we can offer the following benefits:

Volunteers will be able to develop their skills, knowledge and confidence in their area of work.  In return DASL asks that you are reliable, able to commit to a minimum of 3 months and support DASL’s Equal Opportunities Policy as well as DASL’s Mission and Objectives.
