Ep 10. Fighting for Leeds, Cllr Judith Blake CBE

Our tenth PSE Podcast takes us on the go to Leeds Civil Hall where we speak with Leeds City Council Leader Judith Blake.

A real whistle-stop tour of the work being done in the North and specifically Leeds. Council Leader Judith Blake joins hosts Emily Rodgers and Matt Roberts for the tenth PSE podcast.

Recorded in Leeds Civic Hall, this podcast is a perfect example of a woman truly fighting for her city. Having inherited an inadequate OFSTED rating, and turned it into an outstanding across the board, Councillor Blake believes the key to real change is working collaboratively – but it can’t be done without real fiscal devolution from Government.

Also Chair of the Local Government Association’s Children and Young People’s Board and Chair of the Core Cities Group, Cllr Blake is deeply passionate about making a positive change to communities in the North.

With specific focuses on transport and early intervention services, what needs to be done is keenly apparent, but in the councillor’s words ‘We’ve been burnt before’.
