London Councils is launching a supplementary consultation on the future scope of the London Boroughs Grants Scheme.

Designed as an addition to the original consultation that ran last year, the supplementary consultation is being launched following a High Court ruling that the original decision did not go into enough detail around equalities issues.

Subsequently, London Councils has sought legal opinion and other expert advice from the Equalities and Human Rights Commission to inform the supplementary consultation, which will run for a month. London Councils is urging all those working or with an interest in the voluntary sector to take part.

London Councils’ Corporate Director of Services, Nick Lester said:

“Although the judicial review found that the original consultation was sound, it did rule that we needed to do more work to assess the detailed impact that changes to the scheme could have on equalities.

“We are now moving quickly to ensure we meet our equalities duties and to provide the voluntary sector with some clarity in this turbulent time."

The closing date for responses is 5pm Friday 8 April 2011.
