To seek approval to extend the current grant
agreements with district and borough councils and Jog Derbyshire
for 6 months whilst the Partnership agreement is formally signed by
The Cabinet Members for Health and Communities approved the:
a) Extension of the physical activity grant funding awarded to each District and Borough Council for the delivery of Exercise by Referral, Walk Derbyshire and Active Fostering services to the sum of £0.422m, noting the full breakdown of allocations outlined in 4.13 from 01 April 2023 to 31 March 2024.
b) Extension of the grant funding for the Jog Derbyshire programme delivered by Peak Running CIC to the sum of £0.070m from 01 April 2023 to 31 March 2024.
Approval of the extension of the physical activity grant to the district and borough council’s will allow the continued delivery of the following programmes: Exercise by Referral, Walk Derbyshire and Looked After Children and not leave a gap in service provision.
Approval of the extension of the Jog Derbyshire grant will allow the programme to have continued funding and support whilst it transitions into the Physical Activity Partnership Agreement. The Jog Derbyshire network has over 40 jog groups, 800 volunteers and over 5000 participants who will continue to be supported.
Extending the grant funding to the district and borough councils and Peak Running for a further 12 months will ensure a continuation of services with no break in funding whilst the Physical Activity Partnership Agreement is put in place and fully functioning to allow for the partnership to then take over the management of these programmes.
Do nothing and allow the current grant agreements to expire without the Partnership Agreement in place. In this scenario allowing the current grants to expire without the Partnership Agreement in place would lead to a gap in service as all current provision of programmes would cease without the current level of funding.
