CT Brief – Issue 49

We are pleased to bring you the brand new CT Brief – Issue 49

The last issue of CT Brief came out shortly after COVID-19 erupted. Since then, we have all endured massive changes to the ways we live and work. The challenges have been significant and will continue for some time to come. But there are many great examples of how organisations and individuals have demonstrated resilience and risen to meet those challenges.

What’s inside?

This CT Brief sets out examples of how councils, housing associations, care providers and charities have adapted to continue providing services throughout the current pandemic, as well as reimagining how we will operate in the future.

But it hasn’t just been COVID-19 that has been having a profound impact in the sectors in which Campbell Tickell operates. The brutal murder of George Floyd has highlighted yet again the ugly face of racism and discrimination. At Campbell Tickell, we have been discussing the impact on us as individuals and what we need to do to as a consultancy. Highlighted in this issue are examples of the thinking – both at Campbell Tickell and from our guest writers – that is informing our approach.
