Five East London authorities have founded a joint working group to maximise the opportunities presented by the Olympics.
The London Boroughs of Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest, which are hosting the event, have formed the Five Host Boroughs Group to minimise competition between the authorities and to exchange support.

Sullivan-Gould was assigned the role by the mayors of Greenwich, Hackney and Newham - Steve Bullock, Jules Pipe and former chair of London Councils Robin Wales respectively - and the leaders of Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest Councils Denise Jones and Clyde Loakes.
