Bira members talk delayed Restart Grants on BBC Radio 4

Bira members spoke to BBC Radio 4 You & Yours about the delay in receiving much-needed Restart Grants.

Peter Wooding, who runs Orcs Nest in London, spoke to presenter Samantha Fenwick about not having received nearly £4,000 yet from his local authority - the Royal Borough of Camden - despite reopening on April 12.

Bira CEO Andrew Goodacre also spoke about other member's frustrations on the Thursday afternoon broadcast.

Bira expressed its disappointment on delayed Restart Grants earlier in the month. More here
