We are delighted to announce that London Assembly Member for Harrow and Brent Cllr Navin Shah tweeted a pledge to raise disability transport issues with London Mayor Sadiq Khan after a meeting with Harrow Mencap.

We are proud to have brought a group of our clients, ambassadors and volunteers together with Navin and Councillors Maxine Henson and Rekha Shah for a meeting about the problems people with learning disabilities face on public transport.

The group spoke about their experiences including a lack of step-free access, bus frequency and speed problems, and bullying and abuse from other passengers.

We hope that any resulting changes will help people with learning disabilities to have better and safer access to public transport in order to participate and engage fully in the wider community and live more independent lives.
