A creative vision for Newham
There is now greater optimism that Newham LBC is reaching a tipping point in its improvement journey, says Tim Aldridge. The ambition is for the council to become a nationally recognised example of best practice by 2023.
Reasons to be hopeful
Newham LBC’s children’s services is rising to the demands of the third lockdown, while continuing to respond to the challenges that already existed in the London borough, says Tim Aldridge.
Rising to the back-to-school challenge
Newham is anticipating an increase in demand for services as schools return, says Tim Aldridge, and COVID-19 has thrown a spotlight on existing inequalities.
Playing our part to support the most vulnerable
