London Borough of Croydon
The London Borough of Croydon is committed to making Croydon into a place noted for its safety, openness, and community spirit where all people are welcome to live and work. We want everyone to recognise and respect each other's differences as well as be united by shared values around freedom, opportunity, fairness and responsibility.
We all have a role to play in helping to make Croydon a place of opportunity and belonging. This means everyone is given the best opportunities throughout their lives to make the most of their abilities and fulfil their potential.
In Croydon, one in four of our residents is either disabled or has a disabled person in their immediate circle. We aim to ensure disabled people play a vital role in helping influence and shape the services available in the borough. In achieving this aim, the council works in partnership with a range of internal and external stakeholders. In doing so it worked in partnership with Disabled Go and local businesses partners to deliver the first local access guide and has continued to work in partnership with them for a period of 11 years.
The Disabled Go website empowers disabled by providing independence and choice. We are also committed to improving our own council services, making them more accessible for everyone. We hope that you will find the guide useful and welcome any comments to improve or update the information.
