Resilient Communities – Regional Perspectives: Dialogue & Debate

Resource type: Webinar

This interactive webinar was streamed live on Friday 18 September 2020. It explored regional perspectives on supporting communities to be more resilient in the UK, to help people respond to, and rebuild after disruptive events and developments.

Cumberland Lodge Chief Executive Dr Edmund Newell was joined by guest panellists:

  • Andy Burnham – Mayor of Greater Manchester
  • Dr Joanie Willett – Senior Lecturer in Politics and Co-Director of the Institute of Cornish Studies, at the University of Exeter.

The discussion delved into some of the recommendations from our Cumberland Lodge Report on Resilient Communities, which was published in partnership with The Young Foundation, in July 2020.

Our report examines opportunities for fostering social cohesion, to help communities be more resilient to disruptive events and developments. Its practical recommendations for local authorities, policymakers and community practitioners are designed to support communities and help us all look ahead to a fairer and more inclusive future.
