Family Fund disabled charity grants await cash decision

A charity which gives grants to low income families with disabled or seriously ill children says it has been forced to stop allocating money in Wales because of a delay in its funding.

The Family Fund normally receives about £2.5m a year from the Welsh government.

But the charity told BBC Wales that it does not know yet if it will receive any money for this financial year.

Ministers in London, Edinburgh and Belfast all confirmed last month that they would be funding the charity this year.

Paul Martin reports.
