Bristol's five year challenge – Tackling Inequality event to discuss the draft Corporate Strategy

Following the launch of Bristol City Council’s draft Corporate Strategy consultation seeking people’s views on a draft five-year plan for the city, Mayor Marvin Rees would like to invite you to an Equality and Diversity event to discuss the city’s future. The draft Corporate Strategy details the challenges for the city and outlines possible solutions to a budget gap of at least £92m from April 2017 – March 2022.

Our vision is for Bristol to have tackling inequalities at its heart, and for Bristol to be a city:

●In which everyone benefits from the city’s success and no-one is left behind

●Where people have access to decent jobs and affordable homes

●In which services and opportunities are accessible

●Where life chances and health are not determined by wealth and background

●That leads on tackling climate change and the damaging impact of air pollution

●Which is easier to get around and has improved public transport

We want to talk to equalities organisations and activists about how we want work together to address the persistent economic, health, and educational inequalities experienced by people from equalities communities. We want to ensure that everyone benefits from Bristol’s success. There will also be a question and answer session. Equalities organisations and activists are invited to come along to share ideas and contribute to the debate about  how the city can make these essential savings whilst still delivering the services that people rely upon.

Please use the entrance to the back of the building as the meeting will take place in the Cash Hall on the ground floor.

 The event will start at 12.00 -13.00 with an opportunity to network and ask questions relating to the budget where light refreshments will be available. The formal meeting will begin at 1pm and close at 3.30pm.

The Mayor and Chief Executive will share their plans for tackling Inequality in the City and participants will engage in a round table even to help shape this agenda. The event will finish with a Q&A session with the Council's Strategic Leadership Team about the budget.

 Entry is by ticket only.
