Age Connects North East Wales will be given a cash boost thanks to the Equality and Inclusion Grant scheme, which was opened to charities and organisations that help promote equality.

Age Connects, formerly Age Concern, based in Connah’s Quay was among the successful applicants and will receive funding for its work in ensuring elderly people across the region are supported and treated with respect.

The total amount of funding available from the grant is up to £1.645 million per year, from 2014-2017, but amounts allocated to individual projects have not yet been specified.

Alyn and Deeside AM Carl Sargeant said: “This funding has been offered to groups across Wales as part of the Welsh Government’s commitment to fairness and equality across the spectrum.

“There were nearly 200 applicants, so Age Connects has done extremely well in demonstrating the fantastic work its employees and volunteers do in north east Wales and I am delighted an Alyn and Deeside-based project has been successful.

“I look forward to seeing and supporting the progress this brilliant charity will make with the help of some extra cash from the Welsh Government.”
