CURRENT EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES
TOWER HAMLETS LGBT+ COMMUNITY FORUM MEETING
The Tower Hamlets LGBT Community Forum is a project that aims to bring together LGBT+ people (and allies) who live, work, study or socialise in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets to discuss and have an influence on issues which affect the local LGBT community, as well as network, socialise and meet other local LGBT people. The Forum also organises quarterly social events for members, and undertakes research into the experiences of local LGBT people so that LGBT voices are heard and represented in local policy making.
The Tower Hamlets LGBT Community Forum would like to welcome anyone who is interested in getting involved to come along before the meeting from 5.30pm to find out more about the Forum over a cup of tea. You are welcome to stay for the rest of the meeting.

FOR THE GIRLS PROGRAMME IN TOWER HAMLETS
Better in Tower Hamlets offers a wide range of fitness and sports activities. As well as supporting Sport England's brilliant This Girl Can campaigns, they also run sessions to help women to be more active.
You'll find sessions specifically aimed at women and girls under the 'For The Girls' programme across their facilities in Tower Hamlets. Get active and have fun in a comfortable environment.
FUTURE OF PARTICIPATION
In July 2023, the Greater London Authority’s Community Engagement Team will host an event programme which will challenge how we think about and ‘do’ participation in policy-making. The week-long exploration will support further dialogue between Londoners, the organisations who support them and the Mayor of London’s policy teams.
London is still grappling with the aftermath of a global pandemic, facing a pressing cost-of-living crisis and contending with challenges to democratic participation, such as the introduction of voter IDs. It is also the city where certain communities are disproportionately impacted with existing and deep-rooted inequalities. The Future of Participation events programme aims to inspire change, foster collaboration and drive the creation of fairer and more inclusive systems and practices for engagement.
