In many ways Lambeth has surged ahead in recent years: our population is growing, employment is rising and our schoolchildren continue to achieve record-breaking exam results. But, despite this we are acutely aware that Lambeth remains one of the most deprived areas of the country and some of our communities still face barriers that prevent them from fulfilling their potential. That is why as a council we have set up the Equality Commission. The commission will identify and tackle these barriers which are blocking equality for many in Lambeth.

But to do this the commission needs your help as it needs to hear from you what the causes of inequalities are, what good work is going on to address them and what else we can do to tackle them. You can do this by coming along to the remaining public meetings for the commission – see below:

Participation, representation and leadership discussion
When: Thursday 5 January 2017 from 6-8pm
Where: Streatham Library
Book your place or find out more at Eventbrite

Crime and justice discussion
When: Saturday 28 January 2017 from 1pm-3pm
Where: Waterloo Action Centre (WAC)
Book your place or find out more at Eventbrite

These meetings will build upon the first two, which where held in November and looked at education and employment.

We need to hear your views so please sign up. You can also find out more about the Equality Commission on our Future.Lambeth website.

For the commission to come up with the right solutions it needs to hear from all of Lambeth’s many communities so we hope to see on the 5 and 28 January.
