The Covid-19 pandemic has been so profound that it can be easy to forget that local government was in crisis long before coronavirus. Partly as a result of a decade of relentless funding cuts, but also because of an absence of strategic direction in nearly all of the areas most important to councils. Hear from LGIU staff about what’s been left unfinished in local government and what we need to address now for recovery: featuring Jonathan Carr-West, Alice Creasy, Andy Johnston, Jane Sankarayya, Janet Sillett and Andrew Walker and hosted by Ingrid Koehler.
