CRP’s Healthy Streets Everyday launches new Guidance Document2nd February 2021 / Posted by Fiona Coull
Cross River Partnership’s Healthy Streets Everyday programme is excited to announce the launch of ‘Mobility Justice & Transport Inclusivity’; an inspiring and reflective guidance document that explores five stories of mobility (in)justice faced by disabled people.
Transport can be one of the principal barriers faced by disabled people. This is explored throughout the document with themes such as journey planning, experiences of private and public transport, and active travel being discussed as part of the different personal accounts.
The five individuals also touched on how the pandemic has impacted their mobility with measures such as emergency streetscape changes having either positive or negative implications. By providing a voice to the everyday experiences of individuals who experience mobility (in)justice, the guidance aims to raise awareness of the variety of considerations that need to be taken in order to make transport and mobility truly accessible for everyone.
In addition, CRP would also like to highlight Transport for All’s Pave The Way report, an independent and in-depth research study into how disabled people have been impacted by Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, and the barriers to Active Travel more broadly.
CRP and its partners are extremely grateful to the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund for making this Guidance Document possible.
