Volunteering with Derbyshire Advocacy Service

Volunteering Opportunities

All of us here at DAS are committed to what we do to enable people with learning disabilities, challenging behaviours and mental ill-health to express their wishes and opinions in ways which are appropriate and as individual as they are. Many of our services are delivered through volunteers but we have a less serious side too! Have a look at some of the things you can do as a DAS volunteer.

We ask you to commit up to 4 hours a month but this very much depends upon what you choose to do. Click on the volunteering role below to find out more about what’s involved.
