Household Support Fund Grant

The purpose of this report is to ask Cabinet to note the urgent decision taken by the Managing Executive Director on 11 November 2021 to:


a)    Approve spending plans for Derbyshire County Council’s allocation of the Household Support Fund grant; and

b)    Approve delegation of authority to the Executive Directors of Children’s Services, Adult Social Care and Health, and the Managing Director to approve amendments and changes to plans for distributing the Household Support Fund in line with the overall scheme eligibility requirements. This will allow the Council to respond flexibly and effectively to any challenges, risks and opportunities that occur during the grant period and maintain our ability to swiftly distribute funds to vulnerable residents.
