Wolverhampton City Council – Judged Excellent!

I was very pleased to read about the Wolverhampton City Council’s  Equalities Peer Review: This is good news for our Council.

The City of Wolverhampton Council have been accredited as an ‘Excellent’ Council under the Equalities Framework for Local Government (EFLG).

The LGA Peer Team returned to the Council on Tuesday 2 October and were here until (Thursday 4 October), meeting with colleagues, Councillors and partners to assess the team’s work against the (EFLG).

In the last three years, City of Wolverhampton Council has moved from no accreditation, through to ‘Developing’ to ‘Achieving’ status which was gained in April 2017 and now ‘Excellent’ status in 2018.

The Managing Director Tim Johnson said in a message to City Councillors “This is a great achievement for the council, the city, its partners and communities. I would like to thank everybody involved in helping us achieve this accreditation.”

Its clear that a whole lot of effort has been recognised in this Peer Review and that can only be good new for our Council.
