London has developed as an epicentre for the coronavirus. Around half the UK deaths have been in the capital and London’s population, economy and infrastructure are all in some ways particularly vulnerable to coronavirus.
Against this context, Centre for London is organising two special Partner Forum events on London and the virus.
Our first meeting will focus on the immediate impact that the virus is having on London, and the challenges it is posing to its most vulnerable citizens, public services, economy and civil society.
We will hear insights from London business, government and community leaders. It is an opportunity to hear from the capital’s leaders and experts on how London is and should respond to the pandemic, share experiences and form partnerships.
Including featured speakers
Saffron Cordery, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, NHS Providers
Rosie Ferguson, Chief Executive Officer, The House of St Barnabas
Dick Sorabji, Deputy Chief Executive, London Councils
Dr Debbie Weekes-Bernard, Deputy Mayor for Social Integration, Social Mobility and Community Engagement, Greater London Authority
