London Fairness Commission Civil Society Discussion- 1st February 2016

London Funders and the London Fairness Commission invited members of London Funders to join in discussion about how civil society groups and their funders can contribute to building a fairer London. 

The London Fairness Commission is the first city-wide debate on fairness in London since Charles Booth mapped levels of poverty and wealth in the 1880s.  The Commission is chaired by Lord Victor Adebowale and has a board of expert Commissioners from the world of business, charity, academia and government. The Secretariat has been hosted and supported by Toynbee Hall.

Having spent 2015 listening to the views of Londoners on whether their city is fair and what should be done to make it a fairer place, the Commission is now consulting with groups on a set of recommendations for building a fairer London.  Our research to date can be found in our Interim Report here. Reflecting the views of Londoners, these recommendations will touch upon the issues of pay and access to employment, reducing the cost of living, and improving access to secure and affordable housing.

Led by Lord Adebowale, the meeting provided a space for civil society funders to feed directly into the Commission’s policy development process.
