empowering

communities

Empowering Communities is a community engagement programme run by Southwark Council. The programme comprises of regular individual ward meetings held by councillors, and two multi-ward meetings per year. The aim of empowering communities is to make communicating local issues to the council easier for communities. Each of PECKHAM'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

Peckham is represented at the East-Central 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: Sunil Chopra / sunil.chopra@southwark.gov.uk / 020 7525 4277
