Liberal Democrats on Cornwall Council are supporting Cornish care homes hard-hit by the Covid-19 pandemic through financial help.
As of June 15th £2,200,094 has been paid to 182 care homes, this equates to £481 for each bed with further payments set to be paid.
Rob Rotchell, Cabinet member for Adults at Cornwall Council:
“We are working hard with our independent colleagues on the Council to ensure that care homes in Cornwall are given as much help as they need through the coronavirus pandemic. We welcome this funding, but there are still significant gaps in the Tory Government’s Covid-19 support for care homes.”
