“We are living in unprecedented times. The COVID-19 pandemic is still impacting our communities, and I know that many people in Camden are also struggling financially from the rising cost of living.
“We spent £19million from our own revenues to cover the costs of our response to Covid-19 that weren’t covered by funding from Government. The need for support doesn’t end now either, as the pandemic has significantly increased demand for some key services including social care, public health and homelessness support and children’s services.”
Councillor Richard Olszewski, Cabinet Member for Finance & Transformation
