Welcome For £613K To Tackle Homelessness In Our Bay

Torbay’s MP Kevin Foster has welcomed today’s (Monday 23rd December 2019) news of an allocation of £612,974 of Government Funding to Torbay Council for work to tackle homelessness in our bay in 2020/21.

The announcement is part of a £260m funding package being announced nationally to prevent people from falling into homelessness as part of a drive to support people at risk.

Kevin said: “Ending homelessness is not only about supporting those facing it, but preventing people ending up homeless in the first place. This latest funding news is welcome and will make a difference to some of our most vulnerable residents, ensuring they have a roof over their head and additional support if needed.”
