Redbridge charity getting nearly £190k to help women into work
A charity is being given nearly £190,000 towards its work helping women into work.
The London Councils group is funding projects at Redbridge Council for Voluntary Service for the next two years.
The charity in Clements Road, Ilford, supports the voluntary and community sector.
All 34 London boroughs contribute to the grants programme, which is splitting £9.4million between 34 groups.
The money is used to commission specific services rather than fund the organisations.
