Funding decision will help support voluntary and community sector organisations - Seeley

13 January, 2017 - by Catherine Seeley


Sinn Féin MLA Catherine Seeley has welcomed news that core grant funding for voluntary and community sector is to continue.

The party’s health spokesperson said:

“I welcome news that my party colleague, Health Minister Michelle O’Neill does not intend to further reduce the level of core grant funding provided under the existing scheme to the voluntary and community sector.

“This move will help support voluntary and community sector organisations.

“As many voluntary and community sector organisations work closely with users of health and social care services and can advocate on their behalf this will assist the Minister with the delivery of her vision for health and social care in the north.”
