Coronavirus: Weekly update from council leader Georgia Gould

PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

As this pandemic continues, we are seeing many in our community struggling to make ends meet. Over half-term, the Council committed to help address food poverty by making supermarket vouchers available to all Camden families with children up to age 18 and in receipt of benefits.

We are grateful to all the businesses and residents across the borough who stepped up with outpourings of help and support for families, demonstrating once again the strength and care in our community.

There is a growing network of schools, businesses, faith, voluntary and community groups, and others, including this paper, working together to make sure no one in Camden goes hungry. I am proud that we are standing together to care for every child who grows up here and we will continue calling for national action.

I also want to express my sincere thanks to those who have supported Camden Learning’s digital divide Crowdfunder so far – whether through donations or helping to spread the important message.

Providing young people with the tools they need to continue to access learning is absolutely vital to giving every child the best start in life.

There is still time to donate to the Crowdfunder, so please do give what you can at crowdfunder.co.uk/end-the-digital-divide-for-camden-pupils

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council
