Decision details

Partnership grant policy 2024/25 - 2028/29

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


Cabinet considered the head of policy and programmes’ report.  This sought approval for a new partnership grant policy, to provide five years’ funding to successful organisations, subject to annual budget approval by Council. 


The policy would provide for revenue grant support to organisations providing information and advice services across the district to residents who were most in need.  The scheme would favour organisations actively exploring partnership or collaborative working with other voluntary organisations to avoid duplication of services and improve efficiency. 


Cabinet supported the proposed policy that committed to awarding funding to organisations for up to five years, subject to annual budget review and approval.  This would give the funded organisations more security, allowing them to plan with confidence to meet the needs of residents.  Cabinet noted that officers would prepare the application process and launch the scheme in July 2023, with the potential funding being in place from April 2024.  Members thanked officers for their work on the policy. 


RESOLVED: to approve the Partnership Grant Policy 2024/25 – 2028/29, as set out at appendix 1 to the head of policy and programmes’ report to Cabinet on 23 June 2023.
