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.
