Social infrastructure in times of crisis

Social infrastructure in times of crisis describes how London's local spaces, facilities and groups supported community resilience in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is based on interviews in Catford, Homerton and Surbiton, and with four case studies across the city, carried out in May and June 2020 as the restrictions of the UK's first lockdown began to lift. Our conversations explored how London's social infrastrcuture is supporting local communities during the early part of the pandemic.

This part of the wider reserach into social infrastructure and soical innovation, published in the Good Growth by Design research inquiry Connective Social Infrastructure.
