Local Government Secretary allocates £1bn to Councils

The Local Government Secretary, Robert Jenrick, has today (Oct 22) confirmed the allocations of £1bn worth of funding that will be delivered to local councils.

The funding was announced last month by the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.

Approximately £900m of the funding will be given to Councils to deal with the ongoing challenges that Coronavirus is putting forward, and to support communities through this period.

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has also confirmed that £100 million will be used to introduce a new fund which will support council leisure centres most in need. Further details on the scheme will be set out soon.

Local Government Secretary Rt Hon Robert Jenrick MP said:

“Since the start of the pandemic, we have backed local councils with the funding they need to support their communities, protect vital services and recover lost income.

“This extra £1 billion funding will ensure that councils have the resources that they need over the winter and continue to play an essential role on the front line of our response to the virus while protecting the most vulnerable and supporting local businesses.”
