The North West London CCGs are committed to working with local residents and community groups on producing their equality objectives. ‘Equality objectives’ are the goals they set to ensure that they are working in an inclusive way to meet the diverse needs of local residents.
Equality objectives should be specific goals that they can measure, which reflect local residents’ needs. Under the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) of the Equality Act 2010, they are required to prepare and publish specific and measurable equality objectives every four years.
The have already engaged with a wide range of local residents, both face to face and via survey, to ask what they think their priorities should be. They are now keen to work with local residents to:
- check they’re happy with the North West London objectives;
- work with them to decide what their local equality objective should be;
- and start planning how they will make these objectives a reality over the next four years.
They recognise that North West London is not a small area, so are providing three opportunities, in different locations and at different times, to take part in these workshops:
