London Met Lab: The Discrimination Challenge
We want to support communities where people of all backgrounds can thrive, where difference is respected and celebrated.
All Londoners deserve to be treated fairly, regardless of their gender, race, sexuality, social class, disability, age and religion. We want to support communities where people of all backgrounds can thrive, where difference is respected and celebrated, and to support the development of public services that meet the needs of every member of our city. We’d love to hear from you about different projects or community initiatives we can work on with you.
