The funding comes from the Local Government Association

A grant to help support social care for families has been given to Bexley Council.

The Local Government Association gifted £25,000 to help support IT-based projects which work with health and social care, welfare reform and give support to troubled families.

Local taxpayers could also benefit from the grant, which will alleviate some of the financial pressures felt by the council.

Bexley’s acting chief executive Paul Moore said: “This is just one example of the work that is going on across the Council to improve services for local people and save public money. It’s also further evidence of our success in securing external funding that will help our residents.”
