Recipients of Section 64 grants finally revealed

The Department of Health has finally revealed which charities have been successful in this year’s section 64 funding applications, almost six months after the decision was expected.
New care services minister Ivan Lewis apologised for the delay, which was caused by a departmental review of all budgets.
The amount allotted to the programme, which supports health and social care projects, fell 3.5 per cent, from £17.85 million to £17.2 million.
Organisations receiving major awards include Drugscope, which received £300,000, Carers UK, which gets £195,000 and National Centre for Independent Living which benefits to the tune of £130,000.
