Northern Ireland funding

4th April 2012 from Family Fund

We are pleased to advise that the Family Fund have received confirmation of this quarter's funding for families in Northern Ireland. We have been notified by the Department of Health that we will receive the same level of funding for 2012/13 that we did in 2011/12, albeit this is a reduction of 11.25% from 2010/11.

Once our first quarters funding is received we will commence grant making. Please note that we now have a large backlog created by the recent shortfall in funding and will be processing these applications in order of date received.

We would like to thank all of the families who have supported us and raised concerns with the Department and their MLA. We will continue to worked hard to minimise the impact of the funding reduction on families across Northern Ireland.
