Newport City Council engaged whatimpact to assist with delivery of a Culture, Heritage and Grassroots sports grant scheme funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. We have been extremely pleased with the speed at which they have been able to put the scheme in place, and the ease of collaboration which has really allowed the Council to distribute much needed funds with speed and diligence.
