2021 Help Through Hardship Crisis conference report
Last week we published the report from our Summer 2021 Help Through Hardship Crisis conference. Delivered in partnership with Wandsworth Community Empowerment Network, this event was an opportunity for local organisations to reflect on learning from the pandemic. While we knew that Covid-19 had an unequal and harmful impact on the most marginalised members of our community, we also knew that community, voluntary and faith organisations had worked with statutory services in unprecedented ways, helping to meet the health and economic needs of our residents. The conference aimed to answer three questions:
- What have we learnt from service delivery during the pandemic – and what do we want to keep?
- What are the risks of new approaches – and how do we ensure we don’t leave people behind?
- What will we take forward as individual organisations and together as a community?
The report summarises the discussion at the conference and recommendations that we and WCEN made after looking back at the event. You can read the full report here and visit the Reports & Plans section of this site to read our other reports about the pandemic.
