Liverpool may slash charities’ funding

    Voluntary bodies in Liverpool are facing cuts of a third in
    funding.

    The council’s voluntary sector funding panel has recommended
    £3.2m of grants for the next financial year, down from
    £4.7m this year.

    Liverpool Council for Voluntary Service said the loss to the
    voluntary sector, when the loss of match funding was added, could
    total nearly £24m. LCVS was told last month that there were no
    grounds for a judicial review.

    The council said no final decision would be taken until an
    appeals process had finished this month.
