Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Strategic Leadership, Culture, Tourism and Climate Change

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Report to approve the additional allocation from 1 October 2022.


That the Cabinet Member:


a)       approves additional resources to the Members’ Community Leadership Scheme by providing an additional allocation of £3,860 to each Elected Member from 1 October 2022. 


b)       approves the carrying forward of any unspent balance of the additional £3,860 into the 2023-24 financial year.


Reasons for the decision:

The additional allocation of £3,860 provides vital funding to initiatives delivered by community, voluntary and youth groups across the county. 


Carrying forward the balance into the next financial year will help to support communities through the prolonged period of the cost-of-living crisis. 


Alternative options considered:

Do Nothing – our communities need support to get through the forthcoming winter, therefore it is important to provide additional funding to support initiatives delivered by community, voluntary and youth groups.
