HEAR Equality and Human Rights Network - Event
HEAR invites you to an event in partnership with colleagues at the GLA .
It will explore how London voluntary and community sector organisations working with people from all equality groups can work with statutory sector partners to tackle inequalities in health across London, particularly where intersectional factors and multiple discrimination and accessibility barriers impact on health.

Committee Room 5, City Hall, The Queen's Walk, London SE1 2AA
As part of the consultation on the Mayor's Health Equality Strategy, this is your opportunity to contribute your views, identify gaps in provision and existing inequalities, discuss solutions and share good practice with colleagues and GLA officers.
Your chance to speak directly to the GLA about your experiences, the needs of the people you work with and what we might do together to tackle health inequality.
A presentation by GLA colleagues will be followed by case studies from HEAR members and focused workgroups on topics important to participants and those they work with, focused on the Strategy document and what the Mayor can do to support your work.

A message from the GLA about the Consultation:
We are delighted to be able to share with you the Mayor's draft London Health Inequalities Strategy – Better Health for all Londoners for consultation. The consultation period will run until 30 November 2017.
Despite having made a great deal of progress in recent years, health inequalities in London remain high. This reduces productivity and impacts on people's quality of life. Healthy life expectancy varies both between and within boroughs. The strategy sets out the Mayor's ambitions and proposals that will help create a healthier and fairer city.
We want to work with Londoners themselves as well as the public and private sectors to help us achieve these ambitions and would welcome your feedback to finalise this strategy. We don't just want to know what you think, but how you can help, what you are already doing, and what the Mayor could do to help you do even more.
