The first in our series of five August Workshops discussing key local issues and developing ideas for the May 2018 manifesto.

Each workshop will consider one or two topics in detail. We start with 30 minutes of short speeches on the topic from local members with an expert background. We will look at the Labour Party General Election 2017 manifesto's position on the subject. Then we have a moderated 60 minutes of discussion with the aim of producing concrete local policies. These will be submitted to the Labour Group on Wandsworth Council for consideration for the May 2018 manifesto.

In this workshop we will be discussing social care (adults and children), and how to deliver the best possible service with the budget available. Wandsworth Council's budget for 2016/17 for adult care and health was £72m, which represented 38% of the entire council budget. This is falling to £68m in 2017/18.

In order to hear from everyone in the time available, members will be limited to 1 minute of speaking time, and no repeated speakers until everyone has spoken once. If you attend you are therefore guaranteed to be able to contribute your thoughts and ideas if you wish. Alternatively, just turn up and listen to the speeches and ideas!

Opening speakers:

Dr Linda Davidson, London School of Economics - adult social care

Others TBA


Please note: these workshops are for members only and you will need to show your membership card on the door. They are free to attend. The formal consultation process for the manifesto will be conducted by the LCF over many months and across the whole community (not just Labour Party members), these August Workshops are just an informal start!
