Action on Disability – New service for Local Disabled Adults

Action on Disability has been asked by its trustees and members to introduce a new Activity Service within Hammersmith and Fulham for local disabled adults. We would like to know from you what activities you would like to access and when. We have created a short list of questions that will help us to get the money we need to set up a new activity service.

We would like you to answer the questions and add any other thoughts or ideas you might have. You can complete the questions here: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=zibQeO-dukCGrZVNlVk_54LPcPgF4M9OkmFKWP5V5e1UNUM4TzlNSkdOTTZWWUpDU0dERFFORzZBNS4u

We would also like to meet with you to hear your thoughts on what activities you would like us to introduce.

Talk at Ten: Equality in the COVID-19 (Virtual) Workplace

In this month’s edition of Talk at Ten we’ll be placing a spotlight on the markedly different impacts that working from home during the pandemic has had on different groups.

With children once again being home schooled has additional childcare been evenly split between the genders? How have staff relatively lower down the pay scale, and potentially without the proper facilities for a true ‘home office’ fared? What can employers be doing to look after their staff now that working from home is the norm?
