Disabled people will highlight the the difficulties they face in Hackney when they are joined on a walk by Hackney councillors, MPs and London Assembly members this Friday (December 3).

Three walks have been organized by disabled people’s forum, Disability BackUp, to mark the International Day for Disabled People.

Disabled adults living in Hackney are invited to join the walks which will take place in Stoke Newington Church Street, another from The Narroway to Mare Street in Hackney Central, and another at Well Street market, South Hackney.

A radio broadcast about the issues faced by Disability Backup members when accessing food will be aired on Hackney based internet radio www.reelrebelsradio.com at 11.30am and 6pm.

There will also be a party at City Edge, 125 Mare Street, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

Disability Backup enables service users to influence change in Hackney, and is accessible to those with physical, sensory or learning disabilities and open to all age groups.
