“Councils share ambitions to move people from hotels and will continue to work closely with individuals and families over the coming months with local partners to help Afghan families find permanent homes."
The purpose of this framework is to support councillors in their local leadership role as they work with local communities to make a difference. It includes suggestions, prompts and further resources to help you think about the skills you use as a councillor.
Public Health Grant allocations to local authorities 2023/24
It is disappointing that the Public Health Grant allocations for 2023/24 have been published so late (15 March). With two weeks away from the start of the financial year and councils are only just being formally told how much money is being made available for councils to tackle costly public health issues such as sexual health, drug and alcohol services and stop smoking services.
Our Housing Advisers Programme is designed to support councils seeking to innovate in meeting the housing needs of their communities. It aims to be simple, flexible, and locally-led. This year, 21 successful projects received money from the programme to promote, facilitate and enhance their role and capacity to meet their local housing need.
