LANGHOLM Day Centre’s funding from Dumfries and Galloway Council may rise by nearly £18,000 from next April.
This year the centre for the elderly receives funding of £55,332 and next year it is set to rise to £73,250.
The boost has arisen after the council reset the funding formula for day services in the region, provided by nine centres.
Annan, Ecclefechan, Gretna, Castle Douglas and Dalbeattie will get less money, while Langholm, Dumfries, Newton Stewart and Stranraer will get more.
The realignment is based on the work the centres do.
Currently, the Health and Social Care Partnership gives £594,700 annually to the nine day centres.
Mrs Cringles said: “There has been no change to the amount each centre has received for five years. Each is funded differently and there is no formula for deciding how the money should be allocated.
“Conversations were held with the day centre network to determine a fairer and more transparent way to fund them. They were keen that funding reflected the service they delivered.
“It was acknowledged that some would gain funding and others would lose funding.”
The council’s decision will now be passed to the Integration Joint Board which will be asked to endorse the move at its meeting in December.
A report to the social work services committee said the council hired independent consultants to review all the day centres, which were voluntarily run and did not provide personal care.
Last November the Integration Joint Board instructed the council to implement the consultants’ recommendations on day services, which included both day care and day centres.
Since then, the third and independent sectors, which deliver day care and day centre services, had worked with community health and social care.
Lilian Cringles, chief social work officer, said: “The willingness of these organisations to work in this way has led to broad agreement on the objectives on the services in the next few years.”
Both day care and day centres will be open to any adult who will benefit from the services they offer.
Sandra Graham, Langholm Day Centre manager, said: “Nothing is approved until the Integration Joint Board meeting takes place.
“This has been going on for months and it looks like the funding will be split more fairly but nothing is signed and sealed yet.
“Hopefully, it’s good news. We’ve been underfunded for years – other day centres get more than us – so hope it will be a more level playing field.
