To support those struggling, in 2021, Labour-run Camden Council reduced council tax up to 100% for 23,124 residents with 12,000 residents receiving a full reduction, 4,500 residents receiving a partial reduction and 7000 pensioners having received a reduction.
We have delivered over 500 new council homes, helping to house over 1,028 people – including 453 children. Our Camden Living Rent homes are helping key workers and lower income families stay in Camden. We will build over 1,100 new council homes.
We are proud that all state schools in Camden are rated as ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. We have spent over £165 million in our schools through our Community Investment Programme.
During 2021’s Holiday Food and Activities programme, we provided free, fun activities that included a free healthy meal to 3,378 Camden school children.
We are issuing a Camden Climate Investment where residents can invest as little as £5 to make Camden more environmentally sustainable.
Since 2018 we have tripled the length of the segregated cycle network, now over 24km and added over 150 cycle hangars with secure storage for 900 bikes.
Our flagship jobs programme, Good Work Camden, has provided support to over 1,300 people. Over 800 have found work or started their own business.
Our Camden Apprentices Scheme supported 241 people into apprenticeships in construction or other sectors in 2019-2020 and since March 2021 we have secured 210 Kickstart roles in Camden, investing £128,000 into providing Kickstart work placements with Camden Council.
We delivered 12,000 food hampers to children during the first lockdown and have issued 115,000 government-funded food vouchers replacing free school meals since the start of the pandemic. We provided £150m to local businesses to support them through Covid.
In 2021 we provided over £3.2 million in funding for voluntary and community organisations. We are now investing a further £2million over the next two years to help organisations impacted by Covid.
Our We Make Camden campaign has collaborated with over 20 community organisations to shape our approach to community-led participation.
