Three St Albans charities have been awarded £720K by the district council over a three year period.

The council cabinet has agreed to give CAB £100,122 per annum, Open Door £71,710 per annum, and Community Central (formerly known as St Albans CVS) £69,174 per annum.

CAB and Community Central will continue to have access to office space at the Civic Centre, worth £82,000 per year.

“This council funding means they can continue to develop these crucial services over the long-term, so support is provided to the most vulnerable in our district.”
