VOLUNTARY groups, charities and hospices looking after the elderly in Hampshire will be getting a slice of more than £1.6m funding to continue their work.

Hampshire County Council’s adult services department will be splitting the cash between various organisations.

A total of £573,284 will be given to voluntary and community groups, like Age Concern Hampshire and the Good Neighbours Support Services.

Councillor Felicity Hindson, who is in charge of adult services at the council, said: ‘I’m delighted to be able to support so many voluntary and community organisations, charities and hospices providing services and support to vulnerable people and their carers in Hampshire.

‘We know the grants make a real difference to the organisations that receive them and the support they give to the community.’
