Established by Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram in 2017, the Advisory Board is the first of its kind in the country and brings together people from a cross section of our local communities, reflecting the diversity of the city region. It acts as an independent sounding board, ensuring that issues of fairness and social justice are considered in every strategy that the Combined Authority develops.
As the work begins on recovery from COVID-19, and realising the Metro Mayor’s ambition to ‘Build Back Better’, there is vital work for the Fairness and Social Justice Advisory Board to do.
The Advisory Board currently meets by virtual means on a monthly basis. Membership is unremunerated, although reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.
The Advisory Board is especially keen to strengthen representation from residents of Halton, Knowsley and St. Helens, as well as from those with lived experience of the LGBTQI+ community, the retired community, neurodiversity, and sensory disabilities. Applications from people resident in the above local authority areas and/or with the lived experience referred to will therefore be particularly welcomed.
