Leaders talk: Building back resilient communities

Leaders talk: Building back resilient communities


This event will look at the significance of local (parish and town) councils to key aspects of community recovery as we begin to emerge from lockdown – ranging from the future of community resilience to partnership working.

The expert panel features:

  • Mark Law, chair of Locality and chief executive of Barca Leeds, who will talk about the local response to local issues, the emergence of new leaders and community actions, new partnerships, cooperation’s historical boundaries, and the way we plan and deliver services.
  • Cllr Bridget Smith, deputy chair of the Local Government Association Safer and Stronger Communities Board and leader of South Cambridgeshire District Council, will talk on resilience, what it is, the different types including environmental, emergency and climate, economic, health and wellbeing and community resilience, and what are the roles, responsibilities and opportunities for local councils.
