Equality Commission - An analysis of disability in relation to Lambeth Council

The Commission’s final report, launched in July 2017, made a number of detailed recommendations pertaining to disability, but also made an overarching commitment to reviewing the profile and understanding of disability across the council as a whole.

 

The purpose of this report is to analyse council performance on disability. This is analysis focuses on the functions and services that were identified in the recent Equality Commission as being most important to disabled residents. This is with the exception of social care, which was felt too broad to include. The report sets out what we intend to do to address any areas of weakness through practical steps.
