The Royal Borough of Greenwich has launched the Greenwich Race Equality Scorecard report, in partnership with the Runnymede Trust and Greenwich Inclusion Project.

Cllr Danny Thorpe, Leader of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, said: “This report brings to light some of the hard truths of the structural barriers, prejudice and discrimination that our ethnic minority communities face every day. As a society, we need to act together to tackle this inequality. I’m hopeful that the future Partnership Board on Race Equality will bring together people and organisations from across Greenwich so we can work together to develop solutions to these complex challenges.”

The report explores the current challenges facing ethnic minority groups in our borough, and includes their experience of:

  • Criminal justice
  • education
  • employment
  • housing
  • health
  • community participation.

This report signifies the start of a larger programme, which is being driven forward by the newly established Race Equality Partnership Board.
