Fund for parents launched

A £15m fund to provide support to parents has been launched
by the government.

The fund will go to organisations providing parenting support.
It will be managed by the National Family and Parenting Institute.
Another £4.9m will go to groups that support couples through
the Marriage and Relationship Support Grant programme.

Margaret Hodge, children’s minister, said parents
preferred to turn to voluntary organisations for help, and this
funding would enable them to provide the appropriate services.
