What is your most memorable moment from your activities supporting Camden communities during the pandemic?
I live near SHAK, and for the first few months would meet people wandering the nearly empty streets who were confused and panicked about what to do and where to go. I helped to point them in the right direction to services and people who could help.
Through these interactions I recognised the value of us being here for people. More recently, we were able to hold a community event for the first time in a long time, which was very special.
What one change would make the greatest difference for Camden as we come out of the pandemic?
I’d like to see organisations and people working together over the longer term and maintaining that impetus and energy to make a difference as we start to recover. We’ve got to now repair a lot of the damage that has been done by the pandemic.
Before this, I think that society was becoming more individualistic, and the pandemic has reminded people of the value of community. We need to get people motivated to get more involved and feel they can play a part in recovery.
