NALC Leaders talk: Building back resilient communities

12:00 - 13:00

Sponsors: BHIB Councils Insurance, Blachere Illumination and CCLA

Before lockdown, many local (parish and town) councils across England had already proven beyond measure their worth to the resilience agenda in their communities. Coronavirus has now permanently embedded the crucial role local councils have to play in community resilience in their areas.

This final session in the Rebuilding Communities online event series will highlight the relevance of local councils to key aspects of community recovery as we begin to emerge from lockdown – ranging from the future of community resilience to partnership working. Book onto this exciting session for an essential blend of strategic, practical and community-facing outcomes for your residents.

Speakers: Mark Law, chair of Locality and chief executive of Barca Leeds and Cllr Bridget Smith, deputy chair of the Local Government Association Safer and Stronger Communities Board and leader of South Cambridgeshire District Council
