Community care
Health services
Leisure services
Housing

Being a Disabled Parent

On April 9th, the Forum organised a very successful Election Question Time at ‘We are 336’ at which candidates representing the main political parties answered challenging questions from a large audience of local disabled people.

The Forum is also actively involved on the Working Group of the Lambeth Disability Hate Crime Partnership.

In the past, the Forum has organised a number of events and meetings including election hustings, a consultation event on the Lambeth Physical and Sensory Impairment Strategy and an accessibility survey of bus stops in the Streatham area.
