The Covid-19 crisis has thrown a stark spotlight on the scale of disadvantage and vulnerability in Newham. At the same time, the way all sectors have worked together, with extraordinary determination and commitment to meet the needs of vulnerable people in our community, has provided a taste of effective partnership and collaboration between the council and other statutory partners and the voluntary, community and faith sector and resident groups.
There is an opportunity to shape a recovery phase that builds on this collaborative approach. Going forward, how might this spirit of collaboration be sustained and strengthened to improve outcomes for our communities so that every resident can access the support they need to become more resilient and better able to lead a flourishing life.
Our objective is to foster relationships and establish the values and behaviours that will form the basis of further collaboration and partnership within the sector and with our statutory partners.
