Volume 496: debated on Wednesday 16 September 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what funding is being provided to friends, families and Travellers for its work on access to healthcare for Travellers. (291305)

£55,355 funding was provided to Friends, Families and Travellers to support access to healthcare for Travellers. The grant has been made through the Third Sector Investment programme and supports our wider aim of reducing health inequalities and paying particular attention to groups or sections of society where improvements in health and life expectancy are not keeping pace with the rest of the population.
