Manchester Fed delighted with funding increase

The Manchester Federation of Jewish Services has welcomed increased funding from Salford City Council for its activities for children with special needs.

On Tuesday, the city council confirmed the provision of £23,500 assistance under the Aiming High scheme. The allocation is £8,000 up on last year and will benefit the Friday afternoon Stay and Play group and the Sunday afternoon Magical Moments group.

Salford has also agreed to fund two play schemes the FJS will run during the December and February school holidays.
