Take part in the East London Pandemic recovery survey
Residents from ethnic minority backgrounds are invited to take part in a survey to help shape the Covid-19 recovery in East London. The survey is particularly interested in hearing from people who identify as Black African, Black Caribbean, Somali, South Asian or Bangladeshi.
This anonymous survey will help identify the top priorities for the community to help address the severe impact of the pandemic on ethnic minority communities in East London.
Easing out of lockdown will allow us to get back to the people and things we love, but going “back to normal” may also bring worry or concern for many of us.
London is full of amazing people and communities who have pulled together throughout the pandemic. Our city works best when we all look out for each other.
Whilst returning to normal, make sure to take some time to check in with friends, colleagues & loved ones.
For those who may be feeling worried or facing uncertainty, remember, you are not alone. Thrive LDN’s website has a range of resources to help you with your mental health and wellbeing, and some ways to get support if you are finding things hard.
A summer of activities and play
We’ve teamed up with partner organisations to offer an action-packed programme of online and face-to-face summer activities, including athletics, drama, theatre, family play, cooking workshops, teddy bear picnics and more, to support families in keeping children learning, entertained and active this summer.
As well as hosting free events, we’ve invested £10 million as part of our parks capital programme. The programme includes improving play facilities to encourage families to make the most of the borough’s outdoor spaces, especially on bright summer days.
Unpaid carers can still access FREE PPE supplies. If you would like to receive PPE, Please contact the Carers Centre on 0207 790 1765 or Ayeda directly.
