Written by Mary


I have lived in Camden since the late 70s (last century!). Following a history degree, I worked in Kings Cross for a trade union for a few years. After leaving I worked with homeless women in Soho and then in Camden working with young offenders on release from prison. I then retrained as a Social Worker at Bristol, working in the area of domestic violence. As a disabled women, I made sure that refuges were accessible and that there was accessible information about them available. I have been involved for several years in local disabled service user groups in Camden, and have chaired Visually Impaired in Camden and a member of that group for many years. I am also a trustee of Camden Disability Action. Since COVID 19 I am unable to go shopping alone or visit other disabled friends. My mobility has been severely curtailed, like many other disabled people. I am still keen however to ensure that transport and streets are accessible to all and that pressure is put on local authorities and transport providers to help bring this about.
