Our Corporate Vision

Mission Waltham Forest is our new corporate plan encompassing an ambitious set of missions that will drive all our work across the Council.

Mission Waltham Forest: our plan for a more equal borough

Mission Waltham Forest sets out the Council’s plan for more equal borough by 2030. It is our commitment to all our residents to tackle the fundamental challenges facing them and drive the change within the Council that is needed to achieve this.

Our six Borough Missions and four Council Missions are designed as challenges for ourselves as an organisation and serve as our commitments to our residents. They will organise Council activity and galvanise us to come together and work more collaboratively.

This means a “One Council” approach, where we seek collective agreement on how we best use our time, attention and resources in a way that best serve our residents.

Mission Waltham Forest is a testament to our unwavering dedication to putting residents at the heart of everything we do. It signals our relentless focus on equality and opportunity for everyone.

Our Council Missions

Our Council Missions set out how we must transform how we work deliver our Borough Missions and our vision. Our Council Missions do not mean business as usual. They will help us become an organisation that is more resilient, dynamic, and capable of adapting to the ever-evolving needs of our communities;

  • A focus on services designed around residents
  • A preventative approach for stronger communities
  • An inclusive workforce that reflects our community
  • A firm financial footing

Our Borough Missions

Our Borough Missions focuses on tackling the issues and challenges that residents are currently facing and set out how we will respond to these between now and 2030.
