Funding boost to tackle poverty in Denbigh announced

Residents of Upper Denbigh are benefit from additional new financial support from the Welsh Labour Government in order to tackle poverty and provide assistance to those in need.

Welcoming the news, Labour’s Vale of Clwyd AM, Ann Jones said:

“I am delighted that the Welsh Labour Government is continuing to support communities in need. While things remain tough due to Tory-enforced benefit cuts and an economic recovery which isn’t reaching ordinary families pockets – I am heartened that here in Wales, the Welsh Government is determined to mitigate the impact of the failures of David Cameron and his Conservative Government”.

The Co-operative Group which runs the Step-Up Project in Denbigh will receive £2.5m in Welsh Government funding – to be split between its projects. This funding comes from a £30m package for the whole of Wales.

Tackling poverty is a core plank of the Welsh Labour Government’s programme for government.
