Charity funding changes result in 'worse service'

The body which represents charities in Wales has criticised changes to the way they are funded.

Graham Benfield, the chief executive of the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA), said the tendency to move from grants to contracts resulted in a "worse service" and was "enormously expensive".

Figures from the WCVA show that between 2006 and 2009 grant income fell by more than two-thirds to £291m.
