Targeted Support Fund key areas announced - Friday 17 April 2009

Birmingham will receive £1 million, the largest share of the Government's £15.5 million fund to help local third sector organisations cope with increased demand because of the recession.

50 areas in England are due to receive grant support, indices of multiple deprivation and percentage increases in the number of Jobseeker's Allowance claimants in the year to January 2009 were used to decide which areas qualified.

Durham will receive £668,000, Hull £471,000 and Liverpool £439,000. Most of the chosen areas are in the north of England, but Barking and Dagenham, Southend and Torbay also make the list.

The one-year fund will be administered by the Community Development Foundation and will open for applications at the end of April or the beginning of May.
