Keeping Tamworth Strong through Covid19

The outbreak of Covid19 affected just about every resident in Tamworth and the villages, I have been doing what I can to keep Tamworth on track, retain jobs, support those who have lost work, boost access to testing and care, helping schools reopen and ensure that everybody has a roof over their head to reduce transmission of the virus. 

In my role as Housing Minister I have also paved the way for the housing and building market to get back to work, assisted with the local resilience forums across the United Kingdom and encouraging landlords and tenants to work together during the pandemic.
