Local Conservatives have today welcomed an additional £2,098,961 for adults and children’s social care in Brighton and Hove from the government.
Local authorities in England are receiving a share of £410 million in 2019-20 for older people, people with disabilities and children. This is in addition to the £240 million winter funding announced last month and will help local authorities to deliver the important services our communities need and support the most vulnerable residents.
The combined funding will mean an extra £3,327,621 for the Council.
Cllr Janio, Leader of the Conservative Group commented “Every winter the NHS comes under additional pressure from the cold weather and all that it brings. The government’s additional funding will go a long way towards easing these winter pressures to both support our vulnerable residents and get people home when they are well enough to be and stop bed blocking. This should help out the city’s Labour Administration who can’t budget, choosing instead to waste money on vanity projects.”
