CCN’s member councils, alongside all of local government, had to change the way they operate and deliver services almost instantaneously as the pandemic begun to spread in the Spring. Their efforts, however, go much deeper than adapting services and re-redeploying staff: they have played a substantial role in helping the national effort to combat the virus; going above and beyond and stepping up where asked.
Today the County Councils Network has released a short publication outlining some examples of where its member councils have stepped up to the national effort. Download it here.
The publication shows how county authorities have risen to the numerous challenges posed by the pandemic, and how they have imaginatively solved problems arising during the pandemic: from re-deploying thousands of staff to frontline roles combating Coronavirus, to piloting new infection control methods in care homes, to delivering thousands of food parcels to the most vulnerable in our societies.
