This week leader of Malvern Hills District Council Sarah Rouse joined host Emily Rodgers on Public Sector Voices after being recognised in the #EverydayHeroes campaign for her leadership since taking over the council.

The area suffered from severe floods that devastated businesses only to be hit with the pandemic as they began to recover, making Cllr Rouse’s first year as leader go from crisis to crisis.

Being a small market town has its benefits, but it also means you have to ‘shout a little louder’ to get the support needed to survive, and with Malvern’s unemployment figures tripling since April, they’re going to need all the support they can get.

Cllr Rouse talks of rescued chickens, emergency planning courses and the importance of putting party politics aside to work for the residents. 

A podcast to celebrate the good work being done and still to do in the Malvern Hills District and across all councils fighting the same battle.
