Transport for All is setting up a regular drop-in service in Brixton.

To be held on the first Thursday of every month, the service will enable Disabled and older people in London to get advice, information and support about transport issues, however large or small; from applying for a Freedom Pass to making a complaint about a poor service.
Richard Farnos TFA’s Information Advice and Advocacy Manager said:
“Virtually all research shows that the majority of people prefer to speak to an adviser face to face, than on the phone or by email. It is often quicker and easier to get to the nub of the issue. If the monthly Brixton Drop-in is a success, we will roll it out to the rest of London with drop-ins in North, West and East London.”

WHEN: First Thursday of every month.
WHERE: Ground Floor, We Are 336, 336 Brixton Road, Brixton, SW9 7AA
