Inclusive London

No Comments
I am extremely pleased to announce the launch of, a new website which has been built to help people find out more about the accessibility features of different sites in London, from 2012 Olympic Games venues to restaurants and tourist attractions. This is a first for an Olympic host city and will contribute towards our efforts to make the London Olympics the most accessible ever.

One of my main aims in terms of the planning for the Olympics is to deliver services which will outlast the Games themselves and improve the quality of life of Londoners. Although Inclusive London was launched with the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics in mind, the site will remain online after the Games have finished and is a resource which I hope will be valuable to Londoners and tourists alike for many years to come. In the shorter term, it will also be useful for those visiting the city for the Royal Wedding and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The website will serve as a “one stop shop” for people who wish to find out more information about accessibility in London. This will help them plan their day and make the most of their time in London. Users of the website can filter search results by a variety of different accessibility requirements, such as wheelchair and pushchair access and whether assistance dogs are welcome. Already there are more than 7,700 locations listed, and this number will increase as businesses and individuals are encouraged to add information to the website.

As my main responsibility as Deputy Mayor is social justice, I think that will help to maximise the opportunities available for everyone to experience London. It can be difficult to find reliable information about accessibility, and so I hope that this website will make it easier and more user-friendly to do so.
