Voluntary & Community Sector – recommendations
The LCC is delighted to publish the 5th and final recommendations paper for consultation, addressing the role of the Voluntary and Community sectors in London.
It’s publication is timed to coincide with the election of the new Mayor of London – Sadiq Khan – with whom the London Communities Commission Chair, Sir Stephen O’Brien, met during the election campaign. The Mayor was sympathetic to the case for investing in London’s worst-hit communities and we recommend the findings of the London Communities Commission to the new Mayor.
Draft Recommendations Papers for consultation
Hot on the heels of the publication of our first paper – the recommendations for the London Mayoral Candidates, (see below), the London Communities Commission is publishing a further three papers in draft for consultation. These are:
LCC Paper 2 Draft Recommendations for Action with LONDON BOROUGHS
LCC Paper 3 Evidence and Draft Recommendations for Action with the BUSINESS SECTOR
LCC Paper 4 Draft Recommendations for Action by COMMISSIONERS OF PUBLIC SERVICES
A fifth paper with recommendations for the Voluntary and Community Sector will follow.
“LCC Launches first report of evidence”
The evidence gathered by the London Communities Commission from leading London community practitioners is set out in this report LCC-Report of evidence. The evidence will inform a series of policy papers to be published over the next three months by the Commission. See below for the first of these papers, for the new Mayor of London.”
“Recommendations to the London Mayoral Candidates”
The Commission has published its first paper LCC Paper 1 Recommendations for Mayor of London Jan 2016 with recommendations for the London Mayor 2016. Consultation with Mayoral candidates is underway. Further papers will be published by the Commission over the next three months.”
