C McFarlane presented the performance report which detailed that a commission was put out for a social isolation project with Age UK being successful and taking the project live on 1st July 2022. The project worker will come to the next meeting to provide an update on the work carried out.


It was stated that there is a GAZ case study attached and Members were requested to look at this. GAZ have also been involved in supporting the PROM project.


In regard to the Youth Development Fund, there will be a meeting with the Exodus project to raise points and clarify provision for young people across the North East area. Members are invited to visit Jenny’s Fields and C McFarlane has dates for these. Cllr Hayward acknowledged that the area is huge and the provision is amazing. Some young people do not get a holiday but Jenny’s field provides this outside out their youth club provision. C McFarlane will be looking at the provision as a whole as the service is due for a review.
