Quarter 4 Performance Report (Dac.22.05.2023/5)


The Area Council Manager submitted her performance report for Quarter 4 and Members noted its contents.


Arising out of the discussion, particular reference was made to the following:


·         the Area Council Priorities, the commissions including TWIGGS, the B:Friend service, the Dearne Electronic Community Village and the work of the Private Sector Housing and Cohesion Officer.  Arising out of the discussion, the following matters were highlighted: 

o   in response to questioning, the Area Council Manager stated that she would provide information in the future about the social return on  investment.

o   The amount of work undertaken at the Dearne Electronic Community Village was noted, however, this was continuing to increase, in part  due to the increased emphasis of the DWP to push people back into work.

·         The Dearne Development Fund and the continuing amazing work undertaken by DIAL.  It was noted that for every £1 spent, there was a social return of £23

·         The work of the Goldthorpe Development Group which was coming to the end of its grant funding period.  Reference was made to the cost of some events which, although small, could put some people off from attending.  There were not many events for which a charge was levied.  It was noted, however, that the cost of running the service over 12 months was not covered by the grant funding received which was a contributory factor to the need to charge for some events.


RESOLVED  that the update be noted.
