LGIU Fortnightly: Covid-19, councillors and community


We talk to new-ish councillor Steve Bridger  of North Somerset District Council who’s helping to build community support during the pandemic and another councillor Robert Lamb of Exeter who is carrying on an extra year following the postponement of the local elections. We hear from Ruthe Isden of Age UK about what we can do to  help the most vulnerable. Our Chief Executive Jonathan Carr-West tells us about the changing world of supporting local government.

Hosted by just Ingrid Koehler this time, because we are social distancing.
