These are your opportunity to directly engage with the issues in your local neighbourhood.
Your local councillor organises community meetings for members of their ward to discuss issues affecting the local area.
Sometimes, your councillor will chair a joint meeting with a neighbouring ward/ councillor to discuss an issue affecting both wards.
Twice a year, the council hosts a multi-ward meeting for residents across several wards.
These meetings are mainly for funding programmes information, process, and announcement of decisions, including:
St. Giles Ward and Camberwell Green Ward are in the West-Central Forum.
Champion Hill Ward is in the South Forum
In each multi-ward forum, a Councillor will be a community champion and will chair these meetings, ensuring they operate effectively. Contact this councillor and the Empowering Communities Development Officer (below) for more information on ward meetings and multi-forum meetings
Community Champion for West-Central: Dora Dixon-Fyle / email@example.com / 07535 932 329
Community Champion for South: Andy Simmons / Andy.Simmons@southwark.gov.uk / 07956 624 484
