Our response to Covid-19

Our response to Covid-19

As a Council we are very used to dealing with emergencies, but unlike other emergencies Covid-19 does not have a clear start and finish. We have never been involved in a countywide or nationwide emergency before. The pace of our response has been phenomenal and we couldn’t have done it without the incredible amount of knowledge we’ve acquired, along with working with our partners in new and innovative ways.

Our staff have responded very well to the situation and have changed how they work, where they work and often what they do, to support the Council in delivering services. The last seven months has been one of continuous learning and improvement, finding and refining new ways of working.

We have put together a brief report to capture the work that has taken place in the last seven months, although it is impossible to capture everything, as the pace of implementation has been so rapid. It covers how we mobilised ourselves to respond, the key issues, impact on our services, financial, health and economic impact, how we have been communicating and new ways of working.

It also aims to recognise the close working and collaboration that has taken place with our partners from all agencies and sectors, without which we could not have achieved so much.
