Sign our Equality and Equity Charter
Royal Greenwich is a vibrant, dynamic borough and home to many diverse communities – which is one of our greatest strengths. However, this diversity also presents challenges and inequalities which need to be addressed to make sure our borough is a place where everyone can succeed and prosper, no matter what your background.
Our Equality and Equity Charter sets out pledges to promote the values of equality, diversity and inclusion. We have a key role in shaping what life is like in Royal Greenwich, but we cannot do this alone.
We are encouraging local organisations to sign the charter and commit to its eight pledges, so that we can unlock opportunities for all people across our borough.
