Battersea Community Forum
Project Category: Informal community group
Battersea Community Forum is an informal group that meets quarterly, at various venues, and is open to anyone living and working in Battersea.
Our vision is for Battersea community members to work together in partnership as an active Voice for Battersea.
The Forum provides an opportunity for members to:
- Come together to consider strategic opportunities for Battersea.
- Share information and network.
- Explore opportunities for fundraising and working together.
- Provide a representative body for consultation about issues that impact on the Battersea Community.
At the annual election in July 2013 Battersea Community Forum members elected Aaron Barbour (CEO, Katherine Low Settlement) as Chair, and Sarah Ellison (Development Manager, Wandsworth Care Alliance) as Secretary. They share the planning and administration of the Forum.
