The Family Fund has been successful in its bid to the Welsh Government’s new Sustainable Social Services Third Sector Grants Scheme, securing one of the largest grant awards available.
However a change in their funding means that, from April 2016, they will have to prioritise families who have not previously received a Family Fund grant. This means that, with the exception of urgent grants for hospital visiting costs, families will not be able to re-apply for funding as they might have previously expected.
Family Fund will continue to accept applications to the current scheme from families in Wales until 31 March or until all available funding is spent.
Any families who would have been eligible to apply up until 31 March 2016 can apply now.
