Equalities assembly

We are committed to giving you the best possible service at all times.  We want to know your views on how we provide our services and we want to work with you to improve the way we deliver them.

The Equalities Assembly has been set up to ensure we involve all our diverse communities.

The Equalities Assembly is a forum, made up of Equality Hubs, which helps ensure Leeds City Council is engaging with and involving the full range of citizens that live in Leeds in the decisions it makes.  It offers all equality groups the opportunity to meet and work together to let the council know the issues that affect them. 

On this page you will find minutes from previous Hub meetings and information about upcoming events.  To view any minutes please use the Documents section.  The Disability Hub meeting was held on 22nd January and the minutes are available from the downloads section.

The last Hub Representatives Network Meeting was held on 23 October 2013.  The minutes are available on this page.

Celebrate Mandela

In celebration of the life and work of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, Leeds City Council is commissioning Celebrate Mandela, a week-long series of arts and cultural events in April.

Held across Leeds from April 24th - 30th, Celebrate Mandela will mark a city wide celebration of the values and inspiration at the heart of Nelson Mandela's phenomenal achievements. the events will help to ensure that his impact lives on in the hearts, minds and actions of a city shaped by culture, diversity and heritage.  Most importantly they will also contribute to sharing that story with young people so that his legacy and values live on in Leeds for generations to come.

With this in mind we are making 15 grants of up to ¬£1,000 each, available for Celebrate Mandela events.
