Mr. Hoyle

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much money Chorley and South Ribble Primary Care Trust gave to projects dealing with children's respite care in 2003. [153490]

Dr. Ladyman

During 2002–03, the Chorley and South Ribble Primary Care Trust (PCT) provided recurrent funding of £11,000 to Derian House Hospice. In addition, the PCT has also agreed to provide funding to the Chorley and South Ribble Crossroads Care scheme. £6,760 will be provided annually for three years and will help to employ three care attendants to work specifically with young adults with mental health needs, learning difficulties or physical difficulties which prevent them taking part in usual social activities with their peers. This scheme currently supports nine families.

Audited accounts are not yet available for 2003–04.
