Weekly update from Councillor Georgia Gould


18 June, 2020 — By Cllr Georgia Gould


As schools continue to welcome more pupils back and other services start to reopen, the safety of our communities remains our number one priority.

As well as ensuring young people can continue their education, it’s essential no child in Camden goes hungry – and we know that for many parents who face financial hardship and uncertainty, putting food on the table has become harder than ever.

Our commitment throughout this crisis continues to be ensuring that every child entitled to free school meals receives this support.

Now we’re gearing up to make sure this continues over the summer for the young people in Camden who are in most need.

With more spaces reopening this week, we all have a part to play in keeping ourselves and others safe.

Washing your hands regularly and wearing a face covering where you are not able to safely social distance, such as in shops and on public transport, is critical. If you have symptoms, please stay at home and get tested – see the below information on Test and Trace.

I know that many more people will need support as this crisis continues – and we’re still here to help.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need support by calling our dedicated coronavirus line on 020 7974 4444 (option 9). There is still anxiety and fear throughout this difficult time, but I know we will continue to work together to help each other through.

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council
