Hampshire County Council Leader, Councillor Roy Perry, has awarded a grant of £60,000 for a Winchester-based charity which supports homeless and vulnerable people in the city, and surrounding areas.
At his latest Decision Day, the County Council Leader and Executive Member for Policy and Resources approved funding for Trinity Winchester, which helps around 800 people each year who are vulnerable to homelessness, addiction, physical/mental ill-health, poverty, social isolation and domestic abuse.
Councillor Perry said;
Trinity offers help and assistance to some of the most vulnerable people in the community, and acts as a lifeline for those who come to find shelter, advice, and support. The services offered by Trinity are in constant demand, and I hope this grant will go some way to helping the charity to provide crucial support to those in need.
The County Council’s grant of £60,000 to Trinity Winchester’s core costs will be divided into three payments of £20,000 per year, over three financial years from 2016/17
