Equalities

London is a wonderfully diverse city and we consider equality in all our work. This includes education, employment, health, transport, housing, policing and crime, engaging different communities and the 2012 Games legacy. We’re committed to promoting fairness and tackling discrimination in London. We’re also working to improve opportunities for all Londoners by removing the barriers that stop people reaching their full potential.
