Inclusive Recovery and COVID Impact Assessment
The COVID-19 impact assessment, agreed by the Inclusive Recovery Co-ordinating Group, sets out a focus on economic recovery, but also considers the wider impacts of COVID-19 on Calderdale and its communities. The impact assessment informs our partnership recovery planning and forms part of Calderdale’s published Inclusive Recovery Plan.
The assessment identifies the impact of COVID-19 on the Council’s longer term priorities of reducing inequality, building stronger towns and combating climate change, and how it might affect wider partnership activity necessary to achieve Vision 2024.
The impact assessment will continue to change as we find out more about the impact of COVID-19 and more data becomes available and will be updated twice a year.
