On this episode, Shaid Mahmood (Chief Officer of Communities, Leeds City Council) is joined by Richard Jackson (Chief Officer- Voluntary Action Leeds and Inclusive Growth Strategy ambassador) and Joanna Resnick
(Producer, Slung Low) to discuss the enormous efforts from the third sector during the current pandemic. They explain how Voluntary Action Leeds and Leeds City Council came together to deliver help and support to vulnerable communities in response to Covid-19. They also reflect on how wider third sector organisations (particularly Slung Low) responded to the pandemic and the challenges for the third sector beyond Covid-19.
