Issue details

Preparations for Winter Planning & Support for families

This report will look at the impact of the pandemic on debt and poverty in the city, the support in place for maximising benefits residents are entitled to, making services more accessible including by digital means, via community structures such as hubs and the developing of a formal winter plan for our communities.

It will also provide options for Executive consideration around how to use remaining emergency and Covid related funding to best effect for the benefit of those residents most impacted by the pandemic.

The Executive will be asked to
