A message from Cllr Sarah Haywood, Leader Camden Council on ‘One Camden’ and diversity.

“Camden is, and must remain, a place that embraces and celebrates diversity.  We have always welcomed people from different countries and backgrounds and valued the contribution they make.

I ask that in this time of uncertainty you join me, my Cabinet colleagues and all at Camden Council in reassuring our communities that we are One Camden – a place for all. We must all stand together now to support everyone that lives and works here.

I have been made aware of incidents of hate crime following the EU referendum.   This is not something we will accept; there is no place for hate in Camden.

Please join me in encouraging anyone who has experienced hate crime to report this to the Police via the police’s 101 number.

If individuals have concerns about community tensions they can contact us, the Council, via 020 7974 4444 or by email communitysafety@camden.gov.uk.

I must reiterate people should phone 999 if they or others are in immediate danger.”
