LCC’s mission is to promote cycling for the public benefit as outlined in our charitable aims . Our vision for London is a city that is a healthier, greener and happier place to live, where anyone who wants to cycle can do so safely and enjoyably on an inclusive, pollution-free, zero carbon road system. Making our city genuinely inclusive and enabling healthy travel for all requires designing our roads for safe cycling.
LCC recognises that access to cycling and its benefits is not equal. Different communities and people face different barriers to taking up cycling. We aim to ensure that reducing those barriers is at the heart of our campaigning work.
To be truly effective in campaigning on behalf of all Londoners who want to cycle, we need to be representative of London at every level within our organisation; equality, diversity and inclusion must be integral to all that we do.
However we recognise that we are not there yet. So we will strive to increase the diversity of our staff, trustees and volunteers – to ensure LCC’s voice is strong and inclusive. And we will empower all who represent LCC to actively engage positively within LCC, and to actively engage and listen actively to the wider community beyond LCC. By transforming LCC in this way we will maximise the effectiveness of our campaigning – for the benefit of all Londoners.
