Local Health Board grants are provided under the Section 64 grants scheme. The grants contribute to the core running costs of care services. Our income from the scheme increased between 2002–3 and 2010–11 by just over 2% per year. Since the 2011–12 financial year, our income from the scheme has remained frozen.
For many of the children, young people and families, there is no one else they can turn to to receive the care and support they need.
