Approval of grant funding


The Cabinet Member for Health and Communities:


approves £15,000 to be awarded via a grant agreement to Bolsover CVS for the purpose of vaccine engagement work in Creswell and South Normanton for a period of 6 months.


Reasons for the decision:

It is recommended to grant Bolsover CVS £15,000 to enable understanding of lower vaccine uptake in Creswell and South Normanton which will support wider work to tackle vaccine inequalities. This will also ensure the funding given to Public Health is maximised.


Alternative options considered:

Do nothing – the Integrated Care Board have given the funding for Public Health to address lower vaccine rates by doing nothing we would not be fulfilling action agreed with partners. In addition doing nothing would not address lower vaccine uptake and potentially increase mortality and morbidity.

Do something different – Bolsover CVS are best placed to deliver community engagement within South Normanton and Creswell, using the Public Health team would not be considered due to the time commitment needed for the engagement work including building up relationships within the community.
