£9 million to benefit help services in East Anglia

Thirty three advice services in East Anglia will benefit from a share of a support package worth more than £9 million which aims to provide help to projects during challenging times.

Across England, some 226 frontline services will benefit from a total of £67m from the Big Lottery Fund's (Big) Advice Service's Transition Fund, while the Cabinet Office is providing half of the funding.

The aim of the funding is to help address immediate needs, but it is also hoped the fund will help strengthen organisations for demands that lay ahead.
