Empowering Communities​

Empowering Communities is a community engagement programme run by Southwark Council.

The programme aims to make communicating local issues to the council easier for community organisations, residents, businesses and other stakeholders.

Each of Camberwell’s wards meets with their councillors a few times per year to talk about issues affecting their neighbourhood, and discuss ways that public money and time could be spent improving it, or even new regeneration proposals in the area.

Everyone in the neighbourhood is welcome to join these meetings. 

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:

 

Cleaner Greener Safer

Neighbourhoods Fund

Democracy Fund

Devolved Highways Fund

 

 

Walworth is represented at the West-Central forum AND the South Forum

 

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 is be a Community champion and will chair these meetings, ensuring they operate effectively.
