That the Cabinet Member:
Approves the award of funding to the five organisations outlined in this report, who meet the Recovery from Alcohol and Drug dependence Grant funding criteria, noting the full break down of allocations as outlined in the financial considerations section, to provide recovery activities in Derbyshire in 2022 and 2023.
The five organisations meet the criteria for
the grant funding and the projects can provide recovery activities
in Derbyshire in 2022 and 2023.
Keep the project proposal length at one year
– Until 2021, project proposals were requested to be one year
in length. However, by requesting the project last for two years,
of which the local authority would fund only the first year, it was
felt this would provide some longer-term sustainability to the
project. This would also allow for a new set of potentially less
experienced but equally innovative projects and organisations to
apply for funding in the subsequent year. We also felt this would
reduce the risk of reliance on council funding to fund existing
projects. We feel we have achieved this with the organisations
recommended for funding in this report.
Do nothing –this was not an option on the basis we know that individuals in receipt of drug and alcohol treatment are more likely to recover from addiction if they can access supportive arrangements alongside treatment.
