Southwark Conversation: Let’s talk about life after covid

Illustration of people in Southwark with buildings, green space and a rainbow with an orange speech bubble saying Let's talk about life after COVID and another speech buble in yellow saying Help us shape Southwark's future to make it a better place to live, work and enjoy life.

As we continue to work hard to keep people safe from COVID-19 and get Southwark vaccinated, we must also plan for a strong and fair recovery.

We know the last year has been tough for most people. Whether you’ve lost loved ones, suffered from ill health, struggled financially or missed friends and family, it has been a really challenging time for everyone.

There were some positives for many of us though, including:

  • communities coming together to support each other
  • getting to know your neighbours
  • more time spent outdoors
  • new appreciation of our parks and open spaces

Whatever your experience, you will know what you’d like to be different from life under lockdown, and any aspects you might like to keep. So we want to hear from you as we plan what Southwark should look and feel like as we work to recover from the last 15 months.

There are a number of different ways you could get involved in this conversation and help us shape Southwark’s future to make it a better place to live, work and enjoy life.
