Answered By: 
The Mayor

The London Growth Hub has been established as an online resource to support all Londoners who want to set up their own business. The web portal was built to be compliant with Priority 1 (Level A) and Priority 2 (Level AA) of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and was developed in consultation with disability charities.

Over the next year the London Growth Hub is developing a further programme of business support activity that will specifically target groups that currently face barriers to enterprise, including disabled entrepreneurs.
