£1m boost for disability groups

A programme to help disability organisations is making a 'significant difference' to grassroots organisations, a minister said

More than £1 million has been awarded under a programme to help disability organisations, the Government announced.

The £3 million fund, launched a year ago, will be extended to Northern Ireland, ministers said.

Esther McVey, minister for disabled people, said: "The idea of the fund was based on feedback we had received from small disability organisations that a little funding at the right time can make all the difference to the support they are able to provide to disabled people."

The fund is making a "significant difference" to grassroots organisations, said the minister.
