Communities Minister announces multi-million pound cash boost to community-led efforts giving local people greater control over local services.
Communities Minister Andrew Percy today (6 April 2017) announced a multi-million pound cash boost to community-led efforts giving local people greater control over local services.
More than 54 projects will receive a share of over £3 million communities funding to help deliver additional services.
A third of the projects receiving funding will focus on offering personalised schemes to improve people’s health and general wellbeing. Other schemes will tackle social isolation, help people find a job, and support those facing homelessness.
Communities Minister Andrew Percy said:
Making a real difference to people’s lives doesn’t always happen by Whitehall diktat. It also comes from the dedication and inventiveness of local people who know their area best and the issues most important to them.
That’s why we’re supporting these innovative projects which provide tailored services that make a real difference to people’s lives.
