I’m a journalist from The Sun looking for more information on support available to renters.

 

I’m looking for more information specifically on how much funding the council received from the government’s extra £65million funding announced for vulnerable renters in October: https://www.*****/money/16526762/how-to-get-help-paying-rent-government-announces-support/

 

In reference to this funding, I’d like to know:

 

  1. How much of this £65million pot of funding did the council receive?
  2. How many households have received help from the funding you were given from the government’s £65million pot?
  3. In total, how much of this funding you received has been given to households in £?
  4. What is the single highest amount given to one household from the funding you received?
