Evesham Editorial 6th Jun, 2021   0

MORE than £2.5million has been handed to Worcestershire County Council through Government Covid-19 grants since December 2020.

The cash came from over £31m allocated to the West Midlands over the same period.

Warwickshire County Council by comparison received £2.2m and Herefordshire £851,591.

In all more than 585,000 grants have been made to vulnerable households in the West Midlands from the money.

Councils have used this money in a variety of innovative and different ways, harnessing their knowledge of the local area to help those most in need.

Minister for Welfare Delivery Will Quince said: “By working with councils across the West Midlands we have been able to reach those most in need, and as we progress along the road to recovery we will continue to support families in the best way possible.”
