Rise of unemployment for disabled people in Tower Hamlets

habibahmed Member Posts: 1 Listener

I seriously believe that every disabled people don't get the chance to work in some organisations in Tower Hamlets, I suffer from epilepsy but I never get the chance to be valued in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets by letting me work for any organisations in the Tower Hamlets Communities.  My MP Mr Jim Fitzpatrick of Poplar & Limehouse doesn't want to recognise me, acknowledge me or for me to be valued member of Tower Hamlets Community, that is really unfair and unreasonable behaviour towards me.

    Hi @habibahmed,
    Sorry to hear about your feelings I live in Hackney not far away from Tower Hamlets.
    Sorry to hear about your experience with your MP and recognition of your personality and disability at the same time. 
    Personally, I think  that but living  in Tower Hamlets you are already a member of it community. And just to mention you are valued person even for yourself.
    You should feel it. Do not wait for other people to say it to you.
    In each person there is valuable skills, talents and I do believe you could share them within local communities/ charities. 
    Stand up for yourself and show them what you can do and how strong you are. 
    And just to mention privately I am not big fun of MP's and to earn my trust the miracle would have to happen first here in UK. 

    Bye the way you did not said if you are female or male. 
    There is 2 group projects which just formed by locals in Hackney. 
    Let me know if you are female or male you may be able to join one of them for coffee morning in spare time. One of the project is mostly for female the other for both gender. 

    Do not give up and trust more  yourself.
