Navin's News: Hardest Hit

I joined the “Hardest Hit” campaign on 30 November 2012

I joined a campaign on 3 December 2012 in support of the ‘Hardest Hit’ in Harrow. The demonstration organised by various voluntary sector organisations in Harrow started from Lowlands Road, Harrow and terminated outside the Harrow Council.

The demonstration marked the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities’ was supported by Harrow leading organisations such as the Harrow Association of Disable People, Age UK – Harrow. Harrow Mind and Harrow Mencap. A large number of demonstrators demonstrated to protect services for disable people. I was joined by Gareth Thomas MP and a number of Harrow’s Councillors who showed their support to persons with disabilities, organisations and for equitable and sustainable development promoted for disable people by the United Nations.

I was pleased to join people of Harrow and a number of our local voluntary organisations to celebrate the United Nations day of persons with disabilities’ and participate with them to promote and protect the persons with disabilities. In the times of austerity measures persons with disabilities are hit even harder at all levels including deprivation and health care issues. I am taking a message to the London’s Mayor from the demonstration today and renew my fight to make Harrow on the Hill and Stanmore stations fully accessible.

The new buses are accessible but fail to provide adequate space for wheelchair users. I pay tribute to the work of our voluntary organisations and the role they play in awareness of the issues and keeping the fight going.
