Community Voice launch

Community Voice will provide a platform for anyone aged 18 or over who lives in Redbridge to have their say on some of the most important issues that affect their neighbourhoods.

Applicants must be able to attend one meeting a month over a 12-month period, and as a thank you, every voice champion will receive £100-worth of
