Dame Rosie Winterton said “As President of Dial Doncaster I am only too aware of the important service they provide to local people with a disability, and also to their family, friends and carers.  Offering not only valuable advice and advocacy but also practical assistance including help with filling out application forms, attending tribunals and offering a wheelchair hire service.  I wanted to thank personally the trustees, staff and the volunteers for all their hard work and dedication which is very much appreciated.”

Dealing with more than 6,000 enquiries from clients every year, Dial Doncaster’s Welfare Benefits Team
provide a vital service ensuring people get the help they need in understanding what support is available and what to do when problems arise.   

Susan Ekins, Chair of Dial Doncaster said “We at Dial are extremely grateful to Dame Rosie for her on-going
support of our Service.  We welcome this opportunity to highlight the fact that we have a highly skilled team of staff and volunteers and that we rely heavily on funding from local government and successful funding bids.  Without these funding streams Doncaster would lose an invaluable service to people with disabilities.”  

Dial also provides a service for families, carers and friends of disabled people and for professionals working with health care. Anyone needing help or advice can telephone Dial Doncaster’s helpline 01302 327800 or email advice@dialdoncaster.co.uk
