We Were Built For This
Locality has produced a new report, ‘We Were Built for This’, which highlights the vital role community organisations have played in meeting community need and supporting people during the coronavirus crisis.
The report revealed that:
- Community organisations have often been the quickest to mobilise and adapt their services.
- Community organisations have been the glue that has held together the community response.
- In areas where the public, community and private sector already have strong, collaborative relationships, support was made available faster and has been more effective.
- Community organisations have been able to harness the upsurge in community spirit.
The report makes a number of recommendations, with Locality calling on government to support a community-powered economic recovery and to create collaborative public services.
