Connecting Communities Grant Extension Report (Nac.11.13.2023/7)


A report was presented which provided Members with an update on the contract extension arrangements for the Stronger Communities Grant funded programme.


The Grant Review Workshop had been held on 31 August 2023 where the grant panel had reviewed the providers’ delivery and performance, and had considered whether the North Area was receiving good value for money.


At the North Area Council Meeting held on 11 September 2023, Members had agreed a further 12 months of intervention by Age UK and DIAL Barnsley.  As a result of the delayed start at the beginning of the programme, the Reds in the Community would continue to deliver until the end of June 2024.


RESOLVED that Members confirmed their decision to continue the funding for two providers of the Connecting Communities Grant programme at a total combined value of £75,000 for a period of 12 months. (Age UK - £40,875.00, DIAL Barnsley - £34,125.00).
