Preston Council will launches its Social Forum today.
This is a forum where a wide range of stakeholders in the city can get together and discuss and influence the Fairness Agenda.
The Fairness Agenda will look, amongst other things, at the establishment and promotion of credit unions and implementation of the living wage in Preston.
It will also consider green energy initiatives and look for opportunities for the wider community through renewable energy.
The Council will act as a facilitator for the platform and will play an enabling role for these improvement issues to be discussed in Preston and kept under constant review.
Coun Matthew Brown, Cabinet member for community engagement and inclusion, said: “The establishment of a Social Forum in Preston is very welcome, and we are delighted to be launching the inaugural meeting.
“There is a gap in the market for cohesive discussions and to see real improvements at a community level about issues that affect the lives of the people of Preston. This Forum will fill that gap and promote the Fairness Agenda.”
