REAL Accessibility Event – Tower Hamlets

This charity-led event brought together a range of displays that demonstrated how locals living with restricted mobility can benefit from greater independence.

This charity-led event brought together a range of displays that demonstrated how locals living with restricted mobility can benefit from greater independence. Visitors received one-to-one advice from qualified representatives, including healthcare professionals on:

  • Accessible public transport choices
  • Travelling with a disability
  • Adapted cars
  • Mobility scooters and wheelchairs

Our staff were seeking feedback from attendees, led by Christine Parr (pictured above busy filling in a questionnaire), so that we can help influence future transport services in the area. This is part of our ongoing ‘London Project’ research initiative which aims to understand more fully the needs of elderly and disabled people in terms of private car, taxi, bus, train and tube accessibility. With this information Driving Mobility can more effectively put forward proposals to reduce the risk of isolation and loneliness in the area.

Simon Edwards (Hertfordshire) and Anu Varshney (South East) supported Christine on the day, and Hertfordshire also provided a vehicle.
