The North Area Council Manager provided an update in respect of the performance of the North Area Council Stronger Communities Grant Projects, including the Ad Astra Barnsley CIC project, Emmanuel Methodist Church, Reds in the Community and Royal Voluntary Service for Older People.
A grants workshop will take place on 20th September which is open to all Members. It is envisaged that Members will agree at the workshop how the remaining £29,766.00 of the 2016/17 allocation will be utilised.
(i) Members note the update together with the outcome and learning from the evaluation and approval process and agree to an amendment to the approval process
(ii) Members approve a revision of the guidance documentation both for applicants and the panel to provide clear instruction to applicants with regard to year on year applications from the same organisation
(iii) Members note the forthcoming grants workshop, prioritise attendance and consider if they wish to run the grants programme in 2017/18.
