Waltham Forest Mobility Forum

Waltham Forest Mobility Forum is a group which meets 3 times a year to discuss access issues in the borough. It's open to anyone with a disability who lives or works in the area. The chair (David Renton) and vice-chair (Flash Bristow) then report back to the Council's transport liaison group, which is well attended by councillors and staff from all public transport providers.

Our next meeting is on Wednesday 18 March at 6.30pm at Walthamstow Town Hall.

The discussion topic is "Safety on public transport", and the meeting will be attended by representatives from the British Transport Police, Transport for London, and Waltham Forest Safety Board as well as council transport officers.

A buffet meal is provided, and if you need assistance with transport it can be arranged via Farzana in Committee Services on 020 8496 4211.

If you are elderly or disabled and would like to improve access in Waltham Forest, please come along - or tell anyone who might be interested!
