Darlington Borough Council have been awarded more than £300,000 to protect the most vulnerable. This money is being used by Darlington Borough Council to help vulnerable people find a permanent place to live.
The Council has been awarded this money over a period of three years to support those with high-level needs, most at risk of rough sleeping. The properties, which the council intends to purchase, will renovate several empty properties in the Northgate area of the town where the project will be based.
The specialist programme will offer intense, personalised, accommodation-based support around the clock for three years.
