ORGANISATIONS working with vulnerable adults in the Huntingdonshire area will benefit from county council grants for the coming year.

Each year, Cambridgeshire County Council invites organisations to bid for grant funding. The council has approved 44 applications for funding in the next financial year, totalling £71,000, an increase on last year when 37 applications were approved.

The successful applications come from organisations providing a range of services and support, including those providing care and social activities for older people, those working with people who have physical or learning disabilities, organisations offering advice and support to carers, the bereaved and those suffering from long-term illness, mental health problems or a traumatic event, community centres, community transport providers and organisations providing emergency aid and community development projects.

They include Papworth and District Day Centre (£2,680), the Bridge Money Advice Centre (£2,680), Somersham and District Day Care Centre (£2,640), Huntingdon's In Town Centre (£2,230), Ramsey and District Community Bus Association (£2,080), Hunts CAMTAD (£1,870), Earith Day centre (£1,790), Carers UK - Huntingdonshire (£1,790), Brampton Memorial Day Centre (£890), St Neots Abuse Project (SNAP) (£670) and Bluntisham Luncheon Club (£530).

The grants will be paid to the organisations in February.
