Inspiring community reactions to COVID-19 – Locality

Locality have launched a new report, “We Were Built for This”, which showcases the inspiring ways community organisations have helped us through the coronavirus crisis.

Following in-depth research with community organisations and local authorities over 12 weeks, the report shows:

  • Existing social infrastructure has been vital to the crisis response
  • Well-functioning local systems have emerged in the heat of the crisis
  • The role of community organisations as “cogs of connection” has been strengthened
  • Community organisations have adapted at pace – but need support to meet the challenges of the future

The committed and agile way communities have responded to the coronavirus crisis points the way to a new future that’s built around community power. But to be truly transformative, policymakers need to catch up with the innovation that’s happening locally – and help embed it as the “new normal” as we emerge from the crisis.
