Is Key decision?: Yes

Purpose:

At the onset of the covid-19 pandemic local people were really engaged in participating in a community response. Many organised themselves into groups or partnered with established groups to provide assistance and support to their neighbours. In the absence of community boards being established a Councillor Crisis fund was initiated, utilising £250K of public health money allocated to the community boards, with a further £50k received from the Rothschild. The funding had to be issued quickly. It is helpful to review the distribution and effectiveness of this funding.

Decision:

Cabinet was asked to consider the recommendations of the Communities and Localism Select Committee Inquiry into the effectiveness of covid-19 grants.
