Social Recovery Taskforce
The meetings of the Social Recovery Taskforce have now ended. The recommendations and priorities captured from the work of the taskforce will be incorporated into a new Community Action Plan for the city. The Community Action Plan will be presented to members of the Glasgow Community Planning Partnership Strategic Partnership for sign-off.
What is the Social Recovery Taskforce
The Social Recovery Taskforce was established as a vital component of Glasgow City Council's Renewal Programme Strategy and Governance Framework.
The role of the Taskforce is to provide leadership and direction and to set out a shared vision that will drive the city's response to the impact of the Coronavirus in relation to a broad range of themes.
Membership is wide ranging and draws extensively, though not exclusively, from partners on the Glasgow Community Planning Partnership (GCPP) Strategic Partnership and the GCPP Executive Group. There is a strong focus on equalities and on ensuring that agreed priorities and recovery approaches are shaped by a strong voice from those with lived experience of poverty and inequality in particular.
