Support getting around
The Disabled Person’s Freedom Pass gives free travel on London public transport – and reduced travel around England – to disabled Islington residents.
You can also get a wide range of other support for travelling around the borough by looking on the Adults Directory.
Support with sight or hearing issues
There are a wide range of services in the borough for adults with sensory impairments. The council has an award-winning sign language interpreting team, and there are a lot of other organisations active in Islington, all of which are listed on our Adults Directory.
Sport and activity
Staying physically active is really important, keeping us healthy in mind and body. There are many regular opportunities for adults with physical disabilities to get involved in sport, dance or other physical activities in Islington – go to All in Islington to find everything from walking to Zumba.
With a little bit of extra support, a lot of Islington residents with disabilities find it hugely rewarding to get involved in the creative arts. Arts groups can be a great way to express yourself, meet people, and stay involved in the community. The ‘Arts’ category on the Adults Directory has a list of all the opportunities in Islington.
Islington’s 11 libraries offer a place for adults with disabilities, along with the whole community, to get online, meet other people and attend interesting events.
To find your local library, visit our Libraries home page.
Help to get about
Many of us need additional support to get around and stay connected to our families, friends and communities. There are a number of organisations who can support you in getting out and about.
Help to stay at home
Everyone wants to continue living in their own home, as independently as possible, but some of us need extra support to do so as we get older.
Staying safe at home
We all want to live in our own homes, and we also all want peace of mind that if something happens to us at home, we have the right support in place to respond quickly and appropriately.
