Help us make Abney Park an Accessible Place for Everyone

We are looking for disabled people to participate in a short tour of Abney Park in which they will have the opportunity to point out examples of good practice and also identify where improvements need to be made. The visit will take place at 6.00 – 8.00 on Tuesday 4 July 2017.

If any of your residents would like to attend please ask them to contact me either by responding to this e-mail or by calling 0208 356 7732. Please also indicate if you have any support needs.

Please feel free to pass this information to anyone else you think may be interested.

Being disabled can sometimes make getting around difficult, but in Hackney the Council is trying to change that, by working with disabled people to make Hackney accessible for everyone, and they are now searching for more people to get involved.

Having limited mobility, vision, hearing, a learning difficulty or other type of impairment can sometimes mean signage on the road, no ramp access or no specialised facilities can make even a trip to the shops challenging.

Hackney Council is launching a campaign, Hackney an Accessible Place for Everyone, this month to highlight and address the access needs of disabled people.

As part of this campaign the Council is organising five guided visits to Stamford Hill, Abney Park, Hackney Central, Dalston, and Shoreditch - areas experiencing rapid change and development. During these visits local residents, Councillors and council staff will have the opportunity to explore the areas and make suggestions on how access can be improved.

Over 15 local disabled people, Councillors, and council staff who work in relevant departments like planning, transportation and town centre management have received training to lead the visits, which will run from Wednesday 21 June to 17 July.

The Council is looking for up to 20 Hackney residents who are disabled or have difficulty moving around participate. Each visit will last around 3 hours.

The visits will take place at the following dates and times:

·         Shoreditch – Wednesday 21 June 5.30 – 8.00 meet Shoreditch Opportunity Hub, 137-139 Bowling Green Walk, N1 6AL

·         Hackney Central – 28 June, 10.30 – 1.00, meet Room 44, Hackney Town Hall

·         Abney Park – 4 July, 6.00 – 8.00, meet Abney Park Stamford Hill entrance

·         Dalston – 12 July, 5.30 – 8.00, meet 2nd Floor meeting room, Dalston CLR James Library

·         Stamford Hill – 17 July 1.30 – 4.00, meeting point to be confirmed

If you would like to participate please e-mail:, or call 0208 356 772, text: 07941 687 153, stating which visit you would like to attend by 12 noon on Monday 19 June. If you need any support to help you participate such as information in large print, or British Sign Language, please let the team know when you make contact.
