Socitm’s 2022-25 strategy to support resilient people, communities, organisations and places

Authors and contributors:William Barker, Martin Ferguson(opens in new window)


The Covid-19 pandemic forced local public services to change the way they work to address the pressing challenges being faced by their communities. The challenge now is to enable and empower Socitm’s members to play their role in supporting and transforming the resilience of people, communities, organisations and places they serve and address the threefold issues of:

  1. The need to build upon the phenomenal response of local authorities and the wider public sector to Covid-19.
  2. The need to sustain the step changes that local public service providers have taken.
  3. The need to harness digital – cultures, capabilities, technologies and data – to enhance the resilience of people, communities, organisations and places

This policy briefing addresses what each of these priorities means in practice, and the challenges and opportunities that our members face and how Socitm – building on our extensive leadership, policy research, conference and advisory offerings – plans to deliver our new, strategic Socitm Connects programme.
