Group Description

This is a group established towards bringing together all Sierra Leone organisations and individuals living in the United Kingdom in the interests of cohesion, solidarity and community awareness.

We wish to acknowledge the support given by the Southwark Council in drafting this Action Plan. The Council notes and wholeheartedly supports the values on the integration of Sierra Leoneans within Southwark and the contribution of the entire community to the Borough. The Council is committed to challenging negative stereotypes and striving to ensure that individuals are not discriminated against on the basis of their status.

The Forum also welcomes the Council’s recognition of the important role Sierra Leoneans have to play and the Forum would like to state its commitment to continuing to work with Southwark Council.

This action plan will identify the need of all Sierra Leoneans, and will also outline the activities designed to improve access, support integration and ensure equality of opportunity for all Sierra Leoneans.

Recognising that the highest proportion of Sierra Leoneans in the United Kingdom live within the London Borough of Southwark, the Council is spearheading this initiative. The various categories of Sierra Leoneans within the Borough range from single parent families, married couples, students, bachelors, asylum seekers and refugees as well as those who have over stayed their visas (the most burning issues affecting Sierra Leoneans).

The profile of Sierra Leoneans living in the UK has risen in recent years, especially within London Borough of Southwark.

This action plan will forms part of the Corporate Equalities Action Plan.
