Reducing Inequality portfolio – Cllr Rosanne Kirk
Over the past few years the city council has worked hard to develop new partnerships between the public, private and voluntary sectors. This portfolio will ensure that over the next few years these partnerships are further built upon.
It will also make sure delivery plans are in place to ensure access to services for all our residents. With some of the most deprived areas in the country located in Lincoln, addressing the key causes of financial exclusion and deprivation are important.
Work to ensure immediate help to deal with the effects of financial exclusion in the ‘here and now’ will also be delivered. In addition, helping families into well-paid work is vital.
