The Wales Council for Voluntary Action has long called for local authorities, health boards and the third sector to work together more imaginatively to develop better services closer to people, more representative of needs, and add value by drawing on community resources. However, the Welsh Government has decided to push ahead with replacing core funding arrangements for national third sector organisations with new project-based grant schemes, that mean that third sector bodies that have been delivering projects and programmes, often for decades, delivering improvements to people’s lives, representing causes and saving Welsh Government statutory bodies money, are now faced with closure or demotion to simply delivery agents for Welsh Government programmes, including, of course, Disability Wales, the rights and equality-based umbrella organisation, which no longer fits the criteria. After 40 years as a national voice, Disability Wales has less than four months to ensure its survival. As one campaigner in north Wales said, ‘we’ve been attacked enough; this just adds insult to injury’. As the Minister responsible for both equality and the voluntary sector, how will you, at this final moment, intervene, if at all, to enable delivery and design with the third sector, which will improve outcomes and save Welsh Government money, rather than trying to shoehorn them in to shrunken organisations simply delivering your programmes?
