Midland groups to get share of £112m to help vulnerable

Three Midland organisations are to get a slice of more than £110 million being ploughed into helping tackle homelessness, mental health problems, addiction and offending.

Birmingham's BVSC, Nottingham's Framework Housing Asssociate and Stoke's Brighter Futures have all been awarded just under £10m each.
