A new photo exhibition in The Glades shopping centre is celebrating people with disabilities.

The exhibition will be located next to Aldo on the lower mall until May 5.

Certitude, which supports people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health needs, is The Glade shopping centre’s chosen charity of the year.

Kate Miller, general manager of the Glades, explained the idea behind the exhibition.

She said: “The reality of being human is that no matter our background, race or religion, at some point in our lives each and every one of us is going to face difficult circumstances.

“Things like changes to our general or mental health, wellbeing, finances, or a personal struggle, will all have an impact on how we feel about ourselves.

“Unfortunately, the society we live in is quick to make assumptions and people in social care are often misjudged about their lives and capabilities.”

Mayor of Bromley, Councillor Kathy Bance, was at the unveiling of the exhibition.

She said: “It’s wonderful to see such real photos – so natural and beautiful. It’s lovely to see the feeling and emotion in each person’s portrait.

“I know quite a few people from the community, so it’s terrific to see them and others having their time to shine in the spotlight.”

Community fundraiser for Certitude, Sam Mason, added: “Our ambition is for everyone we support, in Bromley and across London, to be valued individuals, leading amazing, fulfilling and happy lives at the heart of their communities.

“And many of them are - but there is still more that we can do.”
