Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Iberian American community are included in my community engagement programme. To date, representatives of the community have attended the Cross Community Forum discussion on employment; housing and they are due to attend discussion on health this month (September). Engagement with the community has also resulted in the successful photographic exhibition of the Latin American community alongside a reception at City Hall to mark the beginning of the World Cup in Brazil (June 2014).

Representatives from the community are also invited and attend my community receptions. Equally, I have continued to provide messages in support of events organised by the community such as Amigo Month, the Latin UK awards (LUKAS) and the Como No, arts festival.
