Emergency grants for homeless charities and Telford Crisis Network

Telford & Wrekin Council’s Cabinet is to give emergency grants to charities that work to support the homeless and rough sleepers and Telford Crisis Network to help them cope with the coronavirus outbreak.
The council is to give £50,000 to support the Telford Crisis Network and other food banks in the borough to help it deal with increasing demand caused by the global pandemic.
The Crisis Network is a partnership of local service providers from public, private and third sector organisations who work to provide a range of services, including emergency food, emergency shelter, temporary accommodation and advice and support to resolve financial crises.
This is in addition to funding support the Council already provides to the Telford Crisis Network.
The council will also give a £30,000 grant to support homelessness in the borough, through Maninplace and STAY Telford to support their work at this difficult time.
The emergency grants for charities that work to support the homeless underlines the council’s long-stated commitment to tackle the whole issue of homelessness and rough sleeping which has seen significant investment over the past three years.
The emergency grants are part of a whole range of measures that the council is announcing as it strives to do everything it can to support the community in Telford and Wrekin as it faces unprecedented challenges posed by the coronavirus.
