The Mayor of London welcomes Disabled Access Day

As Disabled Access Day events happen across the country this weekend, The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan welcomes the celebration!

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said:

“I pledged to be a Mayor for all Londoners, and will do all I can to make our city a more accessible and inclusive place. That’s why I’ve announced the biggest boost to step-free access on the Underground in the network's 153 year history, by investing an additional £200m over the next five years. I was proud to welcome the world’s first Global Disability Innovation Hub here in London, bringing together world-leading experts and communities to make discoveries that will change the lives of people with disabilities around the world.

“There is still more to be done, and I want London to be the most accessible city in the world - in work, travel, leisure, culture and sport. I’m delighted that many of our great city’s cultural gems and organisations are celebrating Disabled Access Day this weekend, creating opportunities for people to try something new.”
