Hammersmith and Fulham Disabled Residents survey
Earlier this year, Hammersmith & Fulham Council set up a Disabled People’s Commission to look at how to make life easier for disabled people living and working in the borough. The Commission is made up of local disabled people from across the borough.
They want to know about your experiences as a disabled person of local services and support. They have put together a survey called ‘Nothing About Us Without Us’. The survey is here https://lbhf.citizenspace.com/finance-and-corporate-services/h-f-disabled-residents-survey-2017
The survey will provide the Commission with vital up to date information about local disabled peoples’ lives. This will enable disabled people to have a say in the decisions made about their support, and tackle the barriers they face to participating on an equal basis with others.
The Commission will use this survey to put together a report about our experiences to help make positive changes.
HAFCAC need as many people to complete the survey as possible – please send it to all the disabled people in Hammersmith and Fulham that you can.
Please also help other disabled people to complete it who do not have internet access. Or you can let the Commission know so they can support them - contact Kevin Caulfield (Policy Officer to Disabled People’s Commission) at Kevin.Caulfield@lbhf.gov.uk or call 0778 9095049.
Hammersmith and Fulham Coalition Against Cuts (HAFCAC) is a campaign group led by and for disabled and older people in the London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.
HAFCAC was originally set up to oppose the introduction of charging for community ‘home care’ services. As a result of the legal challenge that we brought in 2009 and our continuous campaigning, Hammersmith and Fulham Council listened, understood our concerns and took action, announcing it would abolish charging.
