If you live or work in the borough, come along to the Greenwich: Our Future Together workshop.

What is Greenwich: Our Future Together?

Greenwich: Our Future Together, the independent Fairness Commission identifying how poverty and inequality can be reduced, was established in September 2016 and wants to hear as many perspectives as possible on how the Council can alleviate poverty.

The independent Commission, led by Lord Bob Kerslake, is composed of 14 Commissioners who are senior representatives at a local, regional and national level. Its aim is to understand the challenges and the opportunities in the borough so that it can present a strategy on how inequality and poverty can be tackled within the Royal Borough of Greenwich. One of the ways the Commission hopes to gain a better understanding of the borough is through a workshop with local residents.

What is the workshop for?

The aim of the workshop is to understand your views and experiences in relation to inequality. The Commission will be asking you what the local challenges are in relation to combating poverty and the ways in which the borough can be made a fairer place.

When is the workshop?

The workshop will take place on:

  • Date: Thursday 23 February 2017
  • Time: 6pm to 8pm
  • Location: Woolwich Town Hall, London, SE18 6PW

Refreshments will be provided.

We hope you will be able to attend, as is it important to gain a wide range of views to ensure that the Commission is considering the different perspectives and experiences of the Royal Borough of Greenwich community.
