Approve use of funding
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.
Do 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 different 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.
