Voluntary sector in Wales to get £11m

Posted on January 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Voluntary organisations in the health and social care sector in Wales are set to benefit from £11m in grants over the next three years. Health and social services minister Dr Brian Gibbons said the grants would be provided to organisations in the physical and/or sensory disabilities, learning disabilities, mental health, carers and older people sectors: “The awarding of these grants is a practical demonstration of the Assembly’s continuing commitment to the voluntary sector,” said Dr Gibbons. “This latest round of three year grant funding awards will give these organisations the financial certainty they need to enable them to effectively plan ahead.”
