Background on the national scheme
The Scottish Government has given each local authority a proportion of its £10million Covid-19 rent arrears grant – and Ypeople is managing the £200,000 allocation for private tenancies in South Lanarkshire.
Vicki Murdoch, who manages Ypeople’s services in South Lanarkshire, said: “We’re determined to make sure the people who are eligible for this financial assistance know that it’s there for them. We will work to reach all landlords and tenants in South Lanarkshire from now until March 2022, to ensure we help get this support to the people who need it.”
