How we helped in 2020

✅ We ensured all political parties were included in all important decisions relating to the pandemic and the safety of our communities.

✅ Worked to ensure no household was left behind, so local people, community groups and businesses got the support they need.

✅ Set up the Community Resilience Fund to give grants to mutual aid community groups across the district. To date about £62,000 in grants have been paid out to 62 groups.
Letters were posted out to all households with information on how to access help, to reach those who had no access to online information.

✅ Ensured all political parties were included in all important decision-making relating to the pandemic and the safety of our communities.

✅ Worked to ensure no household was left behind, so local people, community groups and businesses got the support they need.

✅ Individuals most financially affected by restrictions have been able to access support for paying their council tax; assistance with the self-isolation grant of £500; support for tenants struggling to pay their rents due to effects of the pandemic.

✅ Contacted all local businesses to ensure they were able to access any covid-related support that was available to them. To date about £28m in grants have been paid out to over 3,000 local businesses affected by the pandemic.
We set criteria for discretionary funding so businesses otherwise excluded from other grants could also get help.

✅ Focussed resources so our Environmental Health team could support local businesses and workplaces to be covid-secure, especially in the retail and hospitality sectors.
A new Covid Compliance officer role was created, and in partnership with neighbouring councils, Community Protection Officers have been active out and about to ensure local compliance. Enforcement has been carried out when required.

✅ Planned ahead to the recovery, allocating funds for key priorities around economic regeneration and market towns, the environment, communities, health and wellbeing, housing and homelessness.
