Meet the Council: Westmorland and Furness

On both issues, Westmorland and Furness is committed to being customer and community focused and is keen to engage with the voluntary and community sector about issues it should consider in developing its approach with customers and people using council services, what good looks like whilst also gathering the views of key groups and stakeholders on the developing approach to EDI.
