• Engagement event for disabled people, parents of disabled children, older people and carers

    London Borough of Lambeth and DisabledGo invites you to an engagement event to seek your views on a new access project for Lambeth.

    The DisabledGo project will provide in-depth access information for 294 venues across Lambeth including  leisure centres, parks, libraries and more.

    An access guide helps increase independence and choice for disabled people. By providing detailed information on the access features of venues and public spaces Disabled people can make an informed judgment about the suitability of access.

    We are holding an engagement event for disabled people, parents of disabled children, older people and carers giving them a perfect opportunity to contribute to the project.

    This year we are offering the opportunity for disabled people to come and work with DisabledGo, shadowing one of our surveyors and helping to collect the access information included in an assessment. Any one who is interested in work experience please can you stay behind to speak with Hannah Salem.

      Lambeth council decided that a community grow space for Solon New Road Estate was too expensive to make it accessible. Although I question their notion of what accessible actually means because they seem to think its just a matter of steps!
      I might have attended this event but as you are collaborating with Lambeth council I will not be involved in any project that awards them brownie points when they clearly discriminate against disabled people and equal access for all.
