ALLFIE’s work to promote inclusive education in the London area
The Mayor of London now has statutory duties in the funding of adult education across the capital. By law, the Mayor must publish a London Plan, setting out the strategic direction for long-term development of integrated economic, environmental, transport and social infrastructure initiatives within the capital. This is now a real opportunity for the Mayor of London to include inclusive adult education opportunities into their vision for a fully inclusive city.
Current campaign work
- Mayoral Elections Manifesto | March 2021: Ahead of the 2021 GLA and Mayoral elections, ALLFIE and Inclusion London jointly launched a Mayoral Manifesto outlining what Disabled Londoners want from the next Mayor and Greater London Authority, including on adult education.
Our previous successes:
- Before the GLA and Mayoral elections in 2016, ALLFIE, Inclusion London and Transport for All jointly launched a manifesto: the Disabled People’s Challenge to the next Mayor of London.
- All London Mayoral election candidates in 2012 and 2016 supported ALLFIE’s inclusive education manifestos.
- The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, pledged his support for ALLFIE’s asks on inclusive education and apprenticeships.
- ALLFIE worked with Transport For All and Inclusion London to produce a Disabled People’s Roadmap for the Greater London Authority.
