H&F ‘Nothing About Us Without Us’ Disabled Residents Survey 2017

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.

It 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.

Disabled people means all groups of people with impairments, which includes physical or hidden impairments as well as mental health.
