Government boost for ACE
The ACE Centre has been awarded Â£70,000 from the Governmentâs Transition Fund to ensure that it can continue to help people with communication difficulties.
The new money from the Government will enable us to make the changes necessary to take advantage of new funding opportunities expected to result from the Governmentâs Big Society agenda.
Minister for the Cabinet Office, Francis Maude, said, âIâm pleased we are able to help support the ACE Centre which has shown it provides vital services for people with communication difficulties and has impressed us with strong plans for developing its services in the future."
Nick Hurd, Minister for Civil Society, said, âWe know some charities face a very difficult time as we take necessary action to reduce the countryâs debt which costs Â£120million every day in interest alone. However, our Big Society reforms will open up billions of pounds of new opportunities for charities in the future. I hope the money announced today will help the ACE Centre to be ready to grasp these opportunities.â
