About the Commission

The Race Equality Commission was set up in January 2021, and is made up of 12 independent commissioners, from diverse backgrounds that broadly reflect the diversity of Ealing. Led by Lord Simon Woolley, founder of Operation Black Vote and President of Homerton College (Cambridge University), as Chair of the Commission, and Cllr Joanna Camadoo, local councillor for the Elthorne ward of Ealing.

Ealing’s independent Race Equality Commission wants to hear from you about people’s experience of inequality in Ealing – what’s the impact on you, your family and your friends. What do you think needs to change to improve people’s lives? 

To get involved in the Commission you can take part in the survey, or alternatively write to the commissioners by email at raceequalitycommission@ealing.gov.uk by post at Race Equality Commission (Community Engagement Team), Perceval House, 14-16 Uxbridge Road, Ealing, W5 2HL  You can also call and speak to one of the Community Engagement Team on 020 8825 6100 from Monday to Friday 9am-5pm.

Meetings and Activities

Commissioners will be hosting regular meetings with speakers invited to address key issues. They will also take part in public activities, both online and face-to-face when that becomes possible to engage with as many people as they can.
