Disproportionality & Anti Racism

London children’s services are determined to tackle the racial disparities which impact upon the children and families we serve, our staff in their workplace and our communities.

ALDCS has initiated a five-year leadership development programme for black, Asian and minority ethnic staff to ensure individuals are supported to fulfil their potential and our organisations are places of genuine equal opportunity; free from racism or discrimination. In this section we share the work which is being undertaken to address racial disparities and Promote anti-racist practice.

We are collecting examples of current good practice undertaken by colleagues and partners across London. You can access our developing library oppposite and contribute using the template.

Priority areas for collaboration have been agreed by colleagues in North Central London and East London, with Terms of Reference in place for North Central London's Youth Justice Disproportionality Working Group.
