A community café is hosting afternoon tea to celebrate International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

The Red Brick Café, in High Street, Wealdstone, is inviting people down to learn more about the work done to support vulnerable people in Harrow.

Organised by Harrow Association of Disabled People and Harrow Council, they have promised to have the kettle on and provide “plenty of sweet treats” at the event, which runs from 2pm to 4pm on December 1.

Cllr Varsha Parmer, responsible for public health and equality at Harrow Council, said: “Not every disability is visible. People with disabilities need their voices heard and should have the same rights regardless of what background you come from.

“I’m delighted that we’re continuing our partnership with DisabledGo to ensure all vulnerable people have access to our venues and services.

“Come along for a nice cuppa and share your ideas on how we can make our services for disabled people even better.”

Members from the voluntary sector, including those from the Job Centre Plus, Stop Hate UK police and Harrow Mencap, will be in attendance.
