The Council has continued to be at the frontline in responding to the Covid19 pandemic, including distributing emergency food and medicine, providing vital social care, running testing centres and now rolling out the virus vaccines. Colleagues and I have been telephoning the most vulnerable in our wards to ensure they are well, and they are aware of the assistance that is available to them.


Throughout 2021 the pandemic also had a huge impact on the way that the Council and Councillor’s worked which has consistently evolved as the pandemic has evolved.


Since May 2021, I have been attending constitutional meetings on your behalf at Oldham Civic Centre, most other meetings have been held virtually, accessed via phone or laptop. I have undertaken training on using this technology so that I could continue to represent you throughout this difficult time.


In my ward, following the lifting of restrictions, I have been able to return to a new normality visiting residents and having face to face conversations with those who have wished for me to assist them with any matters, I have still been available by e-mail or telephone for people to contact me if they have problems that they would like my assistance with. During 2021 I have assisted over 250 of our residents with personal issues who have contacted me via phone, email, or social media.


As part of the council’s #Don’tTrashOldham campaign, myself and my ward colleagues have been arranging litter picks and joining community groups when able to do so as well as encouraging residents to #LoveWhereYouLive.


For the past year I have been acting as the Deputy Cabinet Member for Corporate Services. In this role I have been working with officers to ensure the residents of Oldham are provided with an improved service from the Council and an improved digital service alongside this. Following the closure of Access Oldham, due to the pandemic, the availability of face-to-face appointments is now being reviewed and I’m working with officers as to the options available.
