Mayoral 'asks' consultations

20 February 2012

In just four months’ time, London will be going to the polls to elect the Mayor of London. The Mayor has a range of important powers that will directly affect the 1.4 million Deaf and disabled people living in London.

Inclusion London wants to make sure that London’s Deaf and disabled peoples organisations (DDPOs) have the opportunity to get your voice heard in the forthcoming mayoral elections. To this end Inclusion London will be:

  •  developing a Deaf and disability equality manifesto that will be detailing the work we want all the mayoral candidates to commit to and;
  •  holding a mayoral hustings with mayoral candidates on Tuesday 20 March, 10.30-1.30pm, at Coin St,108 Stamford Street, South Bank, London SE1 9NH

This will be a unique opportunity to put your comments and questions directly to the candidates.

We want our manifesto to be your manifesto too and reflect the priorities you want the Mayor to work on. To do this we would like you to spare 15 minutes to take part in our mayoral ‘asks’ consultation which is available on our website http://www.inclusionlondon.co.uk/mayoral-asks-consultation

We would like you to complete the form by simply marking with an x the ‘asks’ you want included in the manifesto and then to prioritise the 2 most important asks under each theme heading. The consultation document also includes background information on the mayor’s role and responsibilities and information on facts and stats relating to Deaf and disabled people.

We need your completed response by Monday 5 March

If you need assistance with completing the form please contact Libby on libby.oakley@inclusionlondon.co.uk or call 020 7237 3181.
