Livability say hello to their new neighbourhood after moving its national office

This week, Livability have moved their national office team from old premises in Shoreditch, to a new office space on the Greenwich Peninsula in London. This morning, the charity took to the streets to announce their arrival and say ‘Hello Greenwich’ to local workers and residents with a mass biscuit giveaway.

‘As a national disability and community engagement charity, people are really important to Livability. We wanted to take this opportunity to say hello to everyone in the area and introduce ourselves. It’s been great to welcome commuters this morning and give them a tasty treat on their way to work,’ said Adam Bonner, Director of Community Engagement and Communications.

Livability have moved the charity’s national office team to the Greenwich Peninsula this week, from former premises in Shoreditch. As a charity that serves a wide range of disabled people, they have designed their new office space with disabled accessibility as a major priority for their new space.

Engaging a specialist DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) consultant and Morgan Lovell – the UK’s leading office interior design, fit out and refurbishment specialist – the charity tasked the building team with creating a working space optimised for collaboration, inclusion and accessibility.

Livability CEO, Dave Webber said: ‘Livability has a large number of disabled service users and staff, and it was essential to us that we created a national office that is open and welcoming to all. The location of North Greenwich has been chosen to be a fully accessible, step-free location and we are proud that the office environment has been designed to meet excellent standards of accessibility.’
