Healthwatch Camden and Camden Disability Action Joint project
Disabled volunteers from Healthwatch Camden and Camden Disability Action visited 28 community centres in Camden, to check how accessible they are to a range of people with disabilities.
We wanted to do this because Camden Council’s strategy for disabled and older people says it will “use community resources first” when developing solutions to peoples’ support needs. This includes “tackling barriers to accessing community facilities”. We wanted to find out how realistic it would be for someone with a disability to use the local community centres and to share this information with Camden council and local disabled people.
