Residents invited to share their experiences of Covid-19 with Public Health
Camden and Islington’s Public Health team would like to invite you to share your experiences of daily life during the pandemic through an online discussion. We will be holding online group discussions in July and August to learn more about how the pandemic is affecting you during this time. Taking part is an opportunity to share your experiences and also listen to other’s experiences too. If you decide to take part in a discussion you will be provided with a £10 shopping voucher as a thank you for your time. Please contact us on: [email protected] and see flyer attached at the bottom of this email for more information.
Preparations for the 2021 Census: engaging with local communities
The 2021 Census is taking place in March/April 2021. The census aims to get a response from every household and persons resident in the UK. In order to achieve this, the Office for National Statistics is working with local councils and would like to work directly with local communities - to raise awareness of the census, to spread the word about the importance of the census and to get local people involved. The census provides a crucially important, once a decade, opportunity to get a snapshot of the nation’s characteristics and provides the basis for planning central and local government services. It provides unique information about the size, diversity and living arrangement of the population.

Camden Climate Citizen Panel – Apply now
The creation of a citizen-led panel came as a recommendation from the Citizen’s Assembly on the climate crisis, which took place last summer. The panel will play an important role in continuing to empower citizens on climate issues and committing to the delivery of Camden’s new Climate Action Plan at a borough-wide level.
Panel members will meet quarterly for a two-year term to review the council’s progress against the projects and initiatives set out in Climate Action Plan. Members will receive a £150 voucher per year providing all meetings in that year are attended.
Applicants that live or work in the borough, with an interest in the climate crisis or an eagerness to learn more, are encouraged to apply.
Further details on the panel and how to apply can be found here.
The application period runs from Thursday 2 July to Friday 24 July.
All the best,
Community Partnership Team
