Our Cities' strongest asset is our citizens and we're working with them to fight Covid-19. Here's some examples of where city authorities have partnered with communities to protect the vulnerable and save lives.
Cities and city regions are doing all they can during the current crisis to make sure transport networks stay running, enabling key workers to get to their places of work quickly and safely. This includes everything from suspending tunnel tolls to free parking for key workers. Meanwhile we're continuing work on vital transport infrastructure that will aid our longer term recovery.
Our city economies are likely to be hit hard by Covid-19. In the short term we're doing all we can to help by distributing grants, helping with business cash flow and doing what we can to ease the strain on peoples' pockets.
Every one of our citizens needs a safe and secure place to live during the current crisis. Our cities are housing the homeless in dormant hotel accommodation and pointing people at risk of domestic abuse to places of refuge.
Our cities have thousands of vulnerable adults, some of whom face lockdown on their own, and many of our cities have begun a big push to recruit more social care workers. Cities are also playing their part in recruiting people to trial new treatments for Covid-19.
