“We want persons with disabilities to live independently and to fully participate in society. Making community buildings more accessible is an important way of achieving this.” Jenny FIELD
The Accessible London program allows voluntary and community organisations to get free advice and funding for improving accessibility to their buildings and services. This program provides funding for access consultancy, specialist disability staff, disability training, physical and sensory building improvements.
Charities and other civil society organisations provide excellent community services. Often the lack of resources creates barriers that prevent persons with disabilities and the elderly from accessing the buildings, participating in sports, cultural or charity activities, and volunteering their time.
