The Race Equality Foundation is to receive funding from the Department of Health’s Innovation, Excellence and Strategic Development (IESD) fund.  The fund supports voluntary sector organisations to develop new, innovative approaches to health and care, actively share excellent practice or improve integrated care and efficiency.

The Race Equality Foundation will roll out a project which will use the Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities parent education programme to tackle violence and help improve the health and care outcomes for the most vulnerable children and young people.

Minister for Care and Support Norman Lamb said: “These projects play a crucial role in supporting people, their families and carers. They are examples of just some of the excellent and innovative work going on throughout the country in the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector – all of which help to create and support strong and resilient communities.”
