About the webinar
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of strong communities and the role local authorities must play in developing them. Community focused leaders like you are uniquely placed to think about what comes next, but it is vital that you have a clear plan for recovery.
If you want your local authority to lead the way when it comes to engaging with your community, you need to be focused on a co-operative approach to the recovery – one that empowers and strengthens communities at all levels.
You need to be looking at how you can navigate the current uncertainty, sustain the positive changes to date and work alongside your partners and communities to tackle the challenges caused by COVID-19.
In this webinar, co-hosted by Mutual Ventures and Bates Wells, we’ll explain how you can do just that using our co-operative framework for recovery. Our panel of experts will share their insights to help you create an effective approach that fosters genuine collaboration and delivers the goals that you’re looking to achieve for your local authority.
During the webinar they will share:
- The five levels of a co-operative approach to recovery and why you need a clear roadmap to emerge from this crisis successfully – from strategic co-operation between local partners to communities delivering public services
- How community-based organisations have been able to respond to the crisis and why they’re well placed to help build stronger communities as we recover
- The lessons learned from various local authorities to help you avoid the potential pitfalls and build a co-operative strategy for a post COVID-19 world
- Real world examples of local authorities that have successfully done this
The current climate presents a unique opportunity for you to build a successful co-operative approach for your Local Authority and one that leading local authorities are already working hard to implement.
If you want to deliver the best for your community then you won’t want to miss this webinar.
