Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
Approve use of funding
That the Cabinet Member for Health and Communities:
a) Extend existing projects, previously funded through Contain Outbreak Management Fund for further periods to 31 March 2023 to maximise use of this additional funding to support the ongoing response to the pandemic.
b) Agree the funding allocations as set out in section 3.4 of the report.
Offer longer-term capacity to provide support that will enable people in Derbyshire to have the confidence or resources to manage the impact of Covid-19.
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.
