Equality and diversity in Lewisham
Lewisham is a diverse community made up of many different groups and individuals. We value and celebrate diversity and believe it essential to try to understand the different contributions, perspectives and experience that people in our community have.
We recognise that not everyone’s experience is equal and there are many forms of discrimination affecting people's lives. Equality of opportunity and freedom from discrimination is a fundamental right for everyone.
We intend to promote equality and prevent discrimination through our roles as service provider, employer and community leader.
