Having been a longstanding supporter of the work of the LIC, Starmer was keen to speak to the team about their experiences and what they learnt for the future of our services.
One of the biggest outcomes from the pandemic was the increase in use of technology and digitalisation of services including the launch of our Digital Inclusion Project and online web chat, as well as moving our cultural offer online.
Paul Knowles, LIC CEO, said:
‘Proud to welcome our local MP and Labour Party Leader to the LIC today. Keir has always had an active interest in the work of the LIC and was keen to understand our experiences during the pandemic, the lessons learnt and plans for the future. Based on the experience and knowledge shared we all agreed that there has never been a greater need in delivering the vision and mission of the LIC with Keir offering us his wholehearted commitment and support’
To finish the day, our Chair, Rosaleen Blair, explained our ambitious plans to redevelop our iconic Camden centre into a world-class Irish culture and community centre. Last September, we received planning permission for a £15million redevelopment to begin within the next five years.
