Who Cares? Trust picks up £1.3m

    A national charity that works with young people in care is the
    largest recipient of money from the £125m Futurebuilders
    fund.

    The Who Cares? Trust was awarded £1.3m of grants from the
    £4.2m first round of the fund which gives cash to groups that
    deliver public services. The trust will use the money to develop
    CareZone, a range of secure online services for children and young
    people living in foster care and children’s homes.

    Charities minister Fiona Mactaggart said: “Many voluntary
    organisations can provide solutions to problems that public
    services cannot deliver. The government is committed to giving the
    voluntary and community sector the security and stability of
    funding it needs to make most of what they can achieve.”
