Building on the work of the Equality Commission implementation, Lambeth Council is holding a large disability-themed engagement event on the afternoon of 27 June for for disabled residents, carers and organisations working with disabled people throughout Lambeth.

How the council is addressing the Equality Commission’s recommendations

The aim of the event is to focus on how the council can address Equality Commission recommendations around:

  • Awareness and understanding of disability
  • Participation and representation of disabled people
  • How services are delivered for disabled people
  • Equality of opportunity for disabled people
  • Underrepresentation of disabled people in leadership.

Join workshops and share information

The event will also

  • Update you on the work the council is doing to address barriers facing disabled residents and staff
  • Give you a chance to speak directly to council staff working in areas we know are important to disabled people

  • There will also be a range of information stalls on the day for you to visit, as well as the chance to network with stakeholders from across the borough!
