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
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

You’ll hear from leaders within the council and external partners and be able to contribute your views in themed workshops. These will be themed by areas identified by the Equality Commission as being 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.

The event is for disabled residents, carers and organisations working with disabled people throughout Lambeth.
