The panel included LOCOG's coordinator of external inclusion and access, David Morris; Dan Biddle, from Access FOUR, who is consulting with LOCOG; Deborah Evans, senior tourism development manager with the London Development Agency (LDA); and Richard Browning, Director of Transport for London's (TfL) Games Transport.
We talked about LOCOG's approach to accessibility and also about the work being done by our delivery partners within LDA and TfL to ensure that London as a Host City offers a truly inclusive environment for everyone coming to the Games.
The audience was eager to hear more! We answered a few questions from the floor, but there was also a steady stream of visitors to the LOCOG stand, and we want to keep the channel of communication open.
Across the London 2012 programme, James Bulley and I will be chairing the Access and Inclusion Group (members are representatives of GLA, LDA, LOCOG, Olympic Delivery Authority and Government Olympic Executive) to ensure Paralympians and disabled spectators have a positive and inclusive end-to-end experience during every stage of their visit to London in 2012.
Main message: we must do everything we can to use the power of the Games to inspire change in the approach to and delivery of accessibility.
