My name is Anna Alston, I’m 38 and have lived in Camden all my life. I am on Camden Disability Action’s (CDA) Leadership Programme at the moment, and my leadership project is focussed on improving access to venues in Camden.
I am experienced at assessing the accessibility of buildings and I have really enjoyed doing that work in the past. It’s important for Disabled people to feel included and able to access all their local venues. It’s good for the venues too, as the more accessible they are, the more people will go!
I’ve also been a Disability Awareness Trainer at El Frida Rathbone and CDA and I am participate in CDA’s Disability Advisory Group and Street Access Co-production Team.
As a community reporter I will be focussing on interviewing a range of people about access issues because this is important to me as a wheelchair user.
