Council pledges support for business

We're pledging to do all we can to support local businesses as much as possible in the countdown to Christmas.

Following First Minister Mark Drakeford's announcement today of further restrictions for pubs, restaurants and other hospitality and indoor leisure businesses, more grants are being scheduled to help them cope.

Welsh Government finance chiefs are still working on the fine detail of arrangements and the council will be acting quickly to help out, making the process as automated as possible for as many businesses as it can without the need for further applications.

Charities urged to apply for slice of food fund

Charities and volunteers aiming to transform lives by helping to put food on the tables of families facing hardship during and after the pandemic have the chance to do even more for their communities.

Swansea Council has set up a £100,000 fund aiming to make a difference by directing cash to projects tackling food poverty or addressing food insecurity.  Applications supporting community growing projects are also welcomed.

In a year dominated by the Covid-19 pandemic, groups awarded grants in the last round of funding stepped-up to make a difference supporting families and vulnerable people through the lockdown and firebreak. More information here:


Black bag waste trips can resume

Residents planning a trip to Llansamlet and Clyne recycling sites from today onwards will be able to take black bag waste to dispose of. Prior to the early lockdown in March this year, visitors to both sites could take black bags of non-recyclable materials but the service was halted when restrictions linked to the coronavirus came into force. Now Swansea Council has put in place measures to allow residents to safely dispose of non-recyclable waste. More information here:
