Release begins: Commission Chair, Rt Rev Jonathan Clark, Bishop of Croydon, said, “We are delighted to be launching this exciting new venture. Over the next 12 months we will involve thousands of people in Croydon in our research to help us develop creative ways to promote opportunity and fairness in our borough. We will put emphasis on the many assets we have here already and how we can extend them for the benefit of the whole community”.

He went on to say, “We are a completely independent body and would like to hear from anyone with experience, ideas or a point of view. We want to understand what the people of Croydon feel about opportunity and fairness and how it affects their lives and those of their families.

“Our work will be transparent and open to all, so please come along on Wednesday to hear our plans and to start the conversation.”

The Commission will be publishing a Foundation Report at the meeting that sets out its approach and there will be plenty of opportunities for people to have their say on the night .

We would be grateful if anyone thinking of attending could let us know by emailing  or ringing Jemima on 020 8688 0650.
