Supporting London's disabled communities

The LBN Wiki Database

The LBN database is available to all members, who can both search and add information.  It will be a useful tool for Support Brokers, who can add information about all kinds of services, events and places of interest, not just things specifically related to disability.  Unlike most databases, it is not limited to a single Local Authority and because it is a Wiki, it is not limited as to the kind of information you can add or search for, which is a must in a Personalised world.  The database can and should include everything from  cinemas to day centres, from museums to wheelchair-accessible restaurants and from care agencies to Centres for Independent Living. 

The LBN Wiki is only available to members - please see our 
How to Join pages for more information on membership.
