Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
Approval of additional support to emergency
energy support via Marches Energy
That the Cabinet Member for Health and Communities:
Approves the use of Contain Outbreak Management Funding to strengthen emergency energy support within Derbyshire until 31 March 2023 via a grant of £0.100m to Marches Energy Advice.
Offer longer term capacity to provide emergency energy support that will enable people in Derbyshire to have the confidence or resources to self-isolate effectively.
nothing: Risk that demand will outstrip resources, once existing
funding runs out, or that staff will leave the organisation as
contracts come to an end.
Consider strengthening other providers: Providing funding to other non-specialist providers via a procurement route carries the risk that individuals living in complex situations who require expert advice and support may not be managed by sufficiently experienced providers.
