Covid-19: Solace key messages and learnings

This week marks the third anniversary of the first national lockdown in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

At Solace we think it is important we reflect and learn from the events and actions we took – individually and collectively, nationally and locally – to ensure that, as a country, we are far better prepared, and much more resilient, to deal with any future crises.

To that end, this Solace document aims to capture the overarching views of Solace’s Policy Board, representing Solace’s membership of about 1,600 local government officers including nearly 300 Chief Executives, about some of the key learnings from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Due to the very nature of their roles, our members offer a unique perspective on how policies interact in place and operate on the ground and therefore were at the forefront of the response to the Coronavirus crisis.
