Citizen-Led Engagement Programme

Source By: London.gov.uk

This year we are once again inviting community groups to apply for grant funding to facilitate their own community-led research projects, in collaboration with the Greater London Authority (GLA).

The Mayor’s Community Engagement team launched the Citizen-Led Engagement Programme in 2017/18 to begin to address inequalities. The programme commissioned six community-based projects and delivered a tailored learning programme.

The Mayor is committed to making the capital a city for all Londoners, where every community can thrive. He is committed to making London fairer and more inclusive, and to encouraging active citizenship. 

This will only be possible in collaboration with London’s communities. We know there are some communities in London that have not historically engaged with City Hall and this has led to a gap in the GLA’s insight and relationships with these communities.

The aim of the programme is to: 

  • strengthen connections and engagement with communities whose voice and influence on public policy is under-represented
  • improve insights into communities who do not currently have a voice in City Hall
  • identify and develop community leaders within community groups and support capacity building within these groups
  • generate valuable insight to inform policy and practice in City Hall
  • build on the learnings from the pilot round of the Citizen-Led Programme, as a way of engaging communities and groups in the work of the GLA

Event invitation to ‘Spending Review 2019 – threats and opportunities for London’s voluntary sector’

Source By: London Councils

When: Wednesday 20 February 2019 09:00 - 12:45

Where: Guildhall, Gresham Street, London, EC2V 7HH

London Funders and London Councils would like to invite you to an event in central London to discuss the threats and opportunities posed to London’s voluntary sector by the Government’s Spending Review 2019.

The Government has announced a major Spending Review which will set the overall amount of money it spends on public services for the next five years. It is expected to come into effect from the Budget in November 2019.

The run up to the review presents a major opportunity to influence the Government’s thinking on the funding of local services provided by the statutory and voluntary sector in London.

London Funders and London Councils would like to engage the voluntary sector across London to:

  • Raise awareness of the Spending Review and its importance to London and Londoners
  • Develop a coalition between the voluntary sector and boroughs to influence the Review.
  • Share ideas on how we best work together to meet Londoners needs.

We would very much like your organisation to attend.

Please register your interest in attending the event at www.londoncouncils.gov.uk/spendingreview
