The Mayor of Wandsworth and her Consort
The Mayor attends the River of Life City Church and is a mother of two. She has chosen three charities to support during her mayoral year:
- The Black Minds Matter project is supported by the Wandsworth Community Empowerment Network and improves the access, experience and outcomes of children and young people in mental health services.
- The Katherine Low Settlement which supports refugees in the community
- Keeping Families Together provides support to families that are struggling with day-to-day issues and creates a safe environment to keep young people away from gang culture an in school.
“I am truly honoured to be appointed to serve the borough of Wandsworth as mayor in only my second year as a councillor, and I believe that I am the first mayor of Ghanian heritage to hold this office. I will try to do my best to serve the council and the community.”
The Mayor will be supported by her consort Victoria Asante. The new deputy mayor is Cllr Sana Jafri (pictured below), an immigration lawyer, human rights activist and community worker.
