Schemes to help vulnerable adults, looked-after children and older people win £22m of grant funding

The Welsh Government has announced it has awarded nearly £22m worth of funding to schemes which will help children, vulnerable adults and older people over the next three years.

The new three-year Sustainable Social Services Third Sector Grant replaces four existing grant streams.

The grants will help fund projects and initiatives that support the Welsh Government’s strategic agenda for social services, including the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014, which comes into force on April 6.

The funding has been awarded to organisations supporting children, young people and their families, looked-after children and care leavers, older people, people with learning disabilities and autism, people with physical and/or sensory disabilities and carers.
