Seek approval from Cabinet Member for Health
and Communities to transfer grant funding
That the Cabinet Member:
Approves a grant of £0.0325m for a 3 month period to Peak Running CIC to allow them to deliver the Jog Derbyshire Programme ensuring continuity of service provision.
Approval of the grant to Peak Running CIC will ensure:
· The Jog Derbyshire Programme has continued support in its delivery
· The Jog Derbyshire network with over 40 jog groups, 800 volunteers and over 5000 participants will continue to be supported.
· There is no break in programme delivery when the current Provider ceases on 31December 2022.
· They are part of the discussions and development of the new Physical Activity Partnership approach that will take effect on 01 April 2023.
Do nothing: Jog Derbyshire is currently managed and delivered by Shift CIC. Shift is winding up operations and will cease on 31 December 2022. Doing nothing will result in the grant with Shift ending and there no longer being an organisation to manage and deliver the programme. As a result, there will be a loss of support for the infrastructure that supports the network including a loss of support to over 40 jog groups, 800 volunteers and over 5000 participants.
Go out for procurement: Attempting to find an alternative host provider via a procurement would leave a gap in service delivery due to the timescales needed to complete a procurement. This could also potentially be at a higher cost and result in losing the support infrastructure, staffing and volunteers that are part of the programme.
