Changes to working neighbourhood funding announced

Published: Wed, 05 Nov 2008 12:18:27

The Government has announced proposals to tighten up part of the formula used to allocate the Working Neighbourhoods Fund (WNF) - a three-year, £1.5bn Fund to turn around long-term unemployment in the most disadvantaged communities.

This move is to ensure this Fund is targeted where it is needed most and means all councils eligible for full WNF after this revision will receive extra funding.

When it was launched last year the WNF was widely welcomed by councils and communities as a valuable contribution to help them develop more concentrated, concerted, community-led approaches to getting people in the most deprived areas back to work.
