In the context of COVID-19 and public health-related lockdown measures, Local Trust commissioned a study examining how communities react to, cope with and recover from major crises. The study started in April 2020 and the first two phases are due to conclude in June 2021. It presents a unique opportunity to gain grounded insight into community responses to crises as they unfold.
This report from the first research phase draws from findings gathered from 26 different communities in England between April and September 2020. It is based on learning conversations with over 300 community members, activists and workers linked to community-led infrastructure and networks.
