Event Focus

We will be focusing on the forthcoming Greater London Authority (GLA) civil society consultation. Most civil society groups are community groups, so it is vital our London Voluntary and Community Sector has input and shapes this.

"Civil Society is of importance to the GLA as it has a major role in addressing the needs of London's disadvantaged and vulnerable communities. It offers an effective and important engagement channel to London's diverse communities, offering the ability to consult and engage across the full range of the Mayor's priorities. The GLA, recognising the role of civil society, will be producing a civil society strategy."

Quote from Executive Summary Terms of Reference for the scoping of a Civil Society Strategy for London

At the event we will ensure maximum opportunity to debate and participate - with table discussion - and a special focus on development of civil society voice, development of structures and governance for civil society and areas of innovation
