Residents are being urged to share their opinions to help tackle poverty so they can be discussed at the first ever meeting of the Redbridge Fairness Commission.
The Commission, made up of councillors, local community organisations and the Citizens Advice Bureau, aims to tackle issues around health and wellbeing across the borough.
Residents can have their views discussed at the Commission by submitting them online or by attending engagement events, which will be arranged throughout the year.
Cllr Mark Santos, co-chair of the Fairness Commission said: “It’s really important that local services and organisations are doing everything they can to tackle poverty and inequality across the borough, particularly at a time of drastic public sector cuts.”
The first meeting takes place on February 24 at the Kenneth More Theatre in Oakfield Road, Ilford, and final recommendations will be made to the full council in November.
