Andrew Lee and Kate Brackley on a platform at Stratford Station

People First (Self Advocacy) and BILD are working with Transport for London (TFL) to find out what people with learning difficulties, disabilities and autistic people think about travelling in London and how their experiences of using transport can be improved. 

Andrew Lee from People First and Kate Brackley from BILD want to encourage and support as many people with learning difficulties, disabilities and autism to get involved in the work as possible.

Kate Brackley says "For many people with learning disabilities transport is a big issue. As someone who has a learning disability, I have used transport in my life and yes I do find  things a bit difficult, but given the right support you can do anything! I recently used the tube by myself for the first time, I'm not used to doing that and I was so pleased that I was confident and managed to do it."

The survey

What are the barriers to getting around and what would make things easier. We want to hear from people who use transport in London (whether they live in London or not) about how we can make travelling easier for people with learning difficulties, disabilities and autistic people.  

The partnership launches with a survey to get the views of people with learning difficulties, disabilities and autism and their supporters.
