“Covid-19 has disrupted our lives like never before – sadly impacting on people’s wellbeing and causing real financial hardship.
“The Scottish Government’s £350 million emergency funding for communities to help tackle such harms has been a lifeline for many groups across South Lanarkshire. Organisations in my constituency like Healthy n Happy, who support people in Rutherglen and Cambuslang, and Community Links in Blantyre have been worthy recipients of this Scottish Government funding.
“Taking the many funding streams into account, South Lanarkshire Council has received per capita funding in line with many councils across Scotland, including, South Ayrshire, Stirling, Perth and Kinross, Fife, and the City of Edinburgh councils.
“Protecting and supporting people during these unparalleled times is the absolute focus of this Scottish Government.”
