Equality & Community Engagement

We recognise that it is important that people of all backgrounds can have a say in the way we run services. Consultation helps us to shape our policies and services and keep us in tune with what our customers want.  The Council has produced a Corporate Consultation Strategy and Consultation Toolkit.

In Cumbria we have got together with District Councils, NHS Trusts and Housing Associations to create a Consortium Agreement with three organisations:

  • AWAZ  - to develop links between Black and Minority Ethnic people of all backgrounds, and to engage with faith groups. 
  • Cumbria Disability Network - to develop links between disability associations, and ensure that they reflect all impairment groups
  • OutREACH Cumbria - to develop links between Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender people.
